    I like that description of her. It's true that we were close. Even when we were at each other's throats, there was an especially tight bond. I didn't have that with her brother Max until after Alice left us. I think we've both tried to close that space she left behind.

    Thank you for sharing some of yourself here. I always look forward to that kind of exchange.

    •  Isn't that what it's about in the end? (5+ / 0-)

      I've often wondered about that.  We can't take anything with us, but those leave behinds can be absolutely golden for those who carry on.

      Yeah, I can feel the closeness in your words.  People who are distant just can't paint pictures like that.  I laughed at you doing a "Kramer" entry to the room, blurting that out, only to catch them!  

      I call that "below the sight line" times.  Kid time.  Deffo not for adults.  My memory of these times with friends doing all sorts of stuff is vivid and very special time.  You communicate it very well.

      BTW:  Stephen King explored that sight line in his book "IT"

      It's dark, and likely not your thing right now, but should you ever get there, I recommend it for that reason alone.  King did an amazing job communicating that special dynamic we have as kids.  Some how we lose it, I don't know why.  Wish I did.

      That's great news with Max.  It means something good.

      I found "parents" in other people's parents, turning into that "Stay and play" kind of kid.  Met some great people who helped sort me out and we are close to this day.
