” The family- that dear octopus from whose tentacles we never quite escape nor, in our inmost hearts, ever quite wish to.”-Dodie Smith.
I was looking forward to an interesting birthday month…had a crazy, solo road trip planned. I was going to be upto my usual shenanigans for ten days. Adventure I wanted and an emotional roller coaster ride I got!
I can’t seem to string the words together to write what I feel or to get into what happened (It’s not an unusual occurence when I speak…I fumble, my mind draws a blank during most conversations). All I can write for now is- this month has been about family, gratitude and the hope that my loved ones go away painlessly and peacefully when they do.
