Phoned my big brother tonight for a chat. You may recall from one of my first postings that my main reason for doing this exercise in introspection was to allow my middle brother into my head. He’s been on wrong end of a very fuzzy lollipop but sounded pretty chipper tonight, though with the delay on the phone line to Melbourne it’s not always easy to have too deep or long conversation. So to keep my half of a deal to stay in touch I decided to write this blog.
Communication does not come easily to my family. We were brought up to keep the peace by shutting the fuck up – a strategy that was largely a monumental failure but this daily download of thoughts and experiences is helping me to tell him about my life and soul.
So if you’re reading this one, B, this smile is for you.
