Thread Name: The father / son thing
Subject: The father / son thing
For better or worse, this Christmas / New Year has had me wondering about what, perhaps, should be one of my life's closest relationships.

It isn't. I'm the son. I try my best, and perhaps I'm hoping for more than I should. I just phoned my dad and managed to say thanks for everything that he'd done for me over the last 35 years. I'm sure he'd have been touched if I told him that I loved him. I didn't, we don't do that...

We live our own lives, but (maybe I've watched too many movies) it would be great to do something meaningful (that had a meaning to both of us) together.

Unfortunataly, I don't think that will ever happen.
