...starts out rather interestingly.

My Dad is dying; seems to be a matter of days, now.
But at least I finally got over my inbred middle-class (?)
inhibitions (emotions were seldom/never talked about
in the family I grew up in) and told him that I love him,
that all is forgiven, and that I don't hold it against him
whenever he wants to leave this world.

I'm getting laid off from work; will be an unemployed
member of the public as of incoming Monday.

I'm absolutely free & single for the first real time in,
lemmesee...32 years yay.gif
And I feel my heart slowly letting go of the past...no
more tears. :)

Glorious feeling of Come What May this lovely morning,
though!


How about you guys..?

We all have periods in our lives where it seems everything changes overnight, and leave you wondering...
what the hell just happened?
Change is one of the few things you can bank on in life... along with death, taxes, and governance by inferiors.

For me, it was a great release to tell my dying dad that I love him and he responded in turn. I'm glad you felt that wonderful release too.

I hope the layoff from work is a welcome respite and not a major worry for you, but you seem to be able to take it all in stride.

Maybe this is the time to really change your life with a new career path, and take a breather from long-term relationships and just have some carefree fun with women.

As for me, it's the same ol, same ol.

AND from a woman. Just be careful which ones you choose to tell that too. They might not be as open and accommodating as the Kritterbox ladies.

It's not as if I was offering myself up for carefree fun, but if I'm ever single again after 31++++ years marriage + 2.5 years dating the same man...I'll be in it just for the carefree fun.

Thank you for friendly replies :)

Yup, the hard way seems to be the only effective way to learn - for me.

Well, there's already been someone wanting to give me some lovin' :)
...but I'm just not ready for anything like that yet.
Just can't touch (in that way) before I feel...unh...solid enough.

But I do understand that it is my own behaviour, more than anything else,
that lead me to this point in life. I am where I must be.

In the daytime, it feels great not to lean on anybody...but at night, the
cosmic loneliness gets heavy as lead every now & then.
Same for all, I guess.

Dad still hanging on.
3 weeks now, since he said he wanted to die now...

Next week 1st gig with new blues trio Cold Ground beercheer.gif
Will be a worthy challenge - double bass, guitar & vocals...nothing
to hide behind, all about balls. Hehhehh.

Onwards.
