family matters

Family Matters There is a family nearby argues a lot fall out then makes friends again with a glass of bubbly and an embrace. As it is, I have fallen out with an assortment of relatives who have stopped sending me pictures of babies which is a relief not seeing them or their ghastly infants again My solitude as a hole in my heart I`m Mary Celeste a schooner found with all its trimming and hot food on the stove but no one to ladle it out and acerbic wit falls like an anchor chain into the sea of incomprehension, is he making fun of us; yes, but only gently so. I must get a dog hate walking alone I used to have one it liked my talk demanded nothing but love it is easy to give to a creature that gives unconditional affection I have drowned friends on the Facebook they didn`t see politics as shifting sand and could accept we are entering a new era and a new explanation for our human conditions is needed instead of the corrupted social liberals who are idealists of a utopia, we shall not obtain. If I had a grandson, I could take him fishing in the dry lake he would see what I once saw go home and tell his mum, who would shake her head and say you are turning my son into a dreamer, one fabulist in the family is enough.
