Meg and Ann

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« I talked to Meg yesterday who is the fourth family member I asked year of death and year of birth of our grandmother.  For some reason I did not want to ask me mom, and I did and it was bad leaving me with regret.  Logic does not explain why I would not ask my mom, but I was right – life it emotional.  Helen Doody was born in 1992 and died in 1954.  With Beth’s ten dollars that she mailed to me in cash and my grandma’s info I am ready to post the first donation to my sister’s website.  Marty is registered in a fund raiser to fight cancer and she has a nice pic of herself and her family with her donations visible, and soon the list will include something like: “Beth T 4 Helen Doody 92 – 54”.  If Marty’s website allows I’ll add, “Twohey” and the “19”s.  My 0:24 con Meg was both wonderful and disturbing.  Just hearing her voice has me floating even high than a Citibike NYC ride with my wife, Hana already had me.  Much of why family has this effect on me was a mystery until my recovery from the death of my late son, David.  Countless mysteries cleared for me during that time, and the mega effect of 0:24 con Meg leaves me on overdrive – yep no surprise.  The disturbing part is my sister Ann.  Ann has herself in Rocky Mountain self exile.  As Meg described her in California for her son’s wedding I hear predicable events.  The nature of Ann’s magnetic personality combined with her emotional instability created panic when expectation began to shape around her.  Seems she abdicated the weddings to her ex-husband, which in some way must have a price though no one can pinpoint the price.  QUESTION: Would she benefit from some contact with me?  ANSWER: Maybe, at least I would.  If I could call her once per year it would be better than more decades passing with no contact. »» about me  201-490-9659  Mom angry  nearlincoln@hotmail.com  contact us
