How Do You Define Family?

Isobel is checking in today to remind me to quit mooning around worrying about things that can’t be immediately changed and start finishing my current book. She wants to know how it ends.

Pap decided to pick up a phone and apologize. I’m sad to say it didn’t help. There was no explanation for “why”, so there is no resolution to the problem. But this blog isn’t about problems. It’s about friends, family and those special people that blur the line between those two groups and become “framily”.

I’m so lucky, I have Mert, my girl down under, Dark Daddy and Tat, Library Lo, and Clay Guy. People whose homes you could show up at on Christmas Day and not feel like an intruder. People who take your side, even when you’re wrong, and then tell you the truth once you’ve regained some semblance of rationality. People who have no expectations of you and don’t get mad when you fail to call them for months at a time, or forget their birthdays. These are the people who’d try to give you a kidney if you needed one. We say any kind of outrageous thing to each other, and never get mad or bored or annoyed with each other. I have an abundance of riches when it comes to framily.

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
