It's the distance, the language, the years of misunderstanding.
There are barriers between people in this family, and deep rooted mistrust and inability to communicate too. I guess all families have that.
Just spoke to dad on the phone. Most of the conversation about money, mortgage and all these other 'cold' issues. Every time. And it make me so sad to talk about them when the chance to talk, to have a bit of connection is so scarce already. Is there nothing else between us? Nothing more 'human', more indicative of the fact that there is more that binds us together as family?
I need a break... away from the noise, dust and undecided plans and expectations.
