He runs away, physically and mentally, from the expectations set for him by an overbearing father, and the uninspiring banality of his suburban, American life of the late 1960s and early 1970s. He changes his identity and becomes Nygel Ply, traveling the world and seeking acceptance from people who knew nothing of Richard. What he finds changes the way he sees others and changes the way he sees himself. His new life, caring for mentally handicapped children, and his new relationships, with other struggling souls, become one perfect mirror for him to gaze. Remembering Nygel is a reflection, by Richard, who relives those moments that he sees as turning points. Everyone has turning points. Some days, when silence fills our minds, we recall them, and connect the lines between them, the successes and the failures, times of joy and pain, and people we loved. For Richard Zelman, his moment of reflection has come.
