And yet again in the midst of life

My father and I have had so little contact with him since 1974 when I left home to marry Glyn and my whole adult life has been lived without him, or his influence. And yet, and yet....when I think of my life, my values, dislike of hypocrisy, belief in hard work, education, and all manner of other attributes that I may not yet recognise as belonging to him, I think I carried his influence with me for many years.

I have missed having my parents and family around me. I will explore all this as I begin to write my memoir at last, but here is a space in which to think about everything.
