Two Brothers

Well if the trip ended tomorrow, it would have all been worth it. It doesn't and I'm still looking forward to meeting neversremedy and hanging out some more with duskfrog. But Joe and I had some very therapuetic talking last night. I've had this stress/guilt thing going on for maybe 20 years that he and I were not getting along the way we should. It stems from our annual family get together at Christmas time with our folks. It seems we get on each other's nerves very easily and I always go home feeling guilty that maybe there was something I did wrong or could have done to not get in his hair. Turns out Joe doesn't like to fly. It makes him anxiouis. I confess I share the same feeling which is why I mostly drive if I can. Also he just gets stressed out at the holidays. Too much expected of us I guess. And the folks always want to go out and do something when we are there. It's never just a time to sit and relax. Now me, I get to NC more often than he does and so I get time to be there and relax so the constant activity at Christmas doesn't bother me. I actually like having the opportunity to get out and see more things.

So I was actually a little surprised and somewhat apprehensive when he said I could spend a few days at his place and after I got here that I could stay here while he was away in AZ. But it's been very good. Very good! He's in his own element here. and we've been getting along like we did 20 years ago. Like good friends. Like when we used to make cross country trips together in my 72 Mustang eating nothing but Almond Joys and Mountain Dew.

We got everything out on the table last night and today I feel 20 pounds lighter...wish I actually was. I took him to the airport this morning and we listened to old Bowie on the way down and sung along. We were both doing some air guitar however I think his finger positions were a little more precise since he's a musician and I can basically only play the radio. And when I dropped him off, we gave each other a big hug so we could both feel the love. I'm happy.

Peace,

Wander

I didn't realize you guys were immortal. I'm impressed.

Only immortal when hopped up on sugar and caffeine, neither of which I can do any more.
