Family disorder

Posted: February 9, 2010 in Uncategorized

Things were really looking up for my familial ties. I’d been to a couple cousins’ weddings, gotten to reconnect with family members I hadn’t seen in years, and really felt I was connecting with my dad. Then the whole cheating thing came out, and its just disintegrating. My mom is just biding her time, pretty much done with the whole thing, nothing’s really changed for my dad, and his side of the family has essentially disowned my mom like it was her doing. This last part is only mildly surprising, as they have their own exclusive reign over a small town in Colorado, and a selection of them were long ago lost to the poisonous mixture of religion, materialism, and popularity. At this point I want to be sure my parents are okay, but otherwise I couldn’t give a crap about the lot of them and I’m back to being on my own.

Not to say that I’m alone, just any sense of cohesive family has pretty much been torched to the ground. These are the last smoldering ashes of my childhood. Is it any wonder my generation clings so tenaciously to the cartoons of our past; the last untarnished and tangible reminders of innocent obliviousness.

    no matter what happens, no matter where you go, no matter, I am your family *hug*
