Talking Heads #7


When I tell my son-in-law about Bruce not paying his way, he says brightly that I should simply enjoy the fact that he’s here with me and stop worrying so much. Easy for him to say, but I can’t help myself worrying about it.

When I tell my daughter about all that’s bothering me and how Daddy’s here and not paying his way, it’s not as though she’s unkind, but she tells me straight out that he can’t be here because he died 5 years ago. Well I know that... but that doesn’t mean he’s not still here!
