the two become one

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel <<< Dear kind man reading this text: A wedding is the beginning of diplomatic relations between a man (forgive me same sex marriages, you too, but the language is too awkward) and the woman’s family and the woman and the man’s family. In my childhood this worked beautifully, because the line of who was born into my family and who was married into my family was blurred ie. my Uncle Tom seemed like my dad’s brother. For my mom’s and dad’s marriage the two had become one, but for some kids the sides of their family is crystal clear. My blogging today is inspired by my call with my former sister in law Jennifer on Thanksgiving Day. She is soon to be a mother, and she told me the news with excitement knowing I would be happy, and I did not disappoint her. She also told me of how their family traditions keep the memory of my late son, David, alive. In private cynical-bitter thought later, I said to myself: if you want to keep the memory of the son alive, maybe consider a modified family membership for the father? It seems someone came in the room, because this happy holiday phone call with Jennifer had a quick and cold end. Later I wrote this:, and I realize there are more people I would like to read this. Luke, Jon, Jennifer’s husband, Nelson, David, Doug, Phil, Drew, Jim, Brad, Brad, Kevin, Sheridan,

Z Brian, Mark are a few I’d like to reach. The gap between the Jennifer phone call and the Steffen letter flowed natural for me. Since I can’t continue diplomatic conversations with Jennifer, why not open diplomatic relationships with Steffen?
