Family has been one concern over the past 7 months. I've been challenged by my not so obvious (read: unconscious) ideas about who I am and what I'm expected to provide for family members. I'll just say that my illusions have been set aside (read: destroyed). They needed to make the transition. I'm not sure what transition I've made, but I'm not the same and never will be. Sounds mysterious, but if I could put my finger squarely on all of this, I'd have nothing to write about.
