3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
So another month begins! The major event of this month will be Son's long holiday in Belarus. Though as parents we will miss him, it's an experience that will do him the world of good, having to organize his own life for a while. It will also be nice to have it a little more free n' easy round the house.
From around the age of 14 to a year ago was something of a "Golden Age" in our relationship, where we were best mates. Inevitably though, he is finding his own way and getting restless, and the lion's share of his time is shut away in his room in pursuit of his relationship with his long-distance girlfriend. He has also taken to spouting negative and politically naive bollocks when he does emerge, and our quality time has shriveled to the odd moment.
All this is of course completely normal, natural and right, and we remain on good terms, and every worthy parent must go through this phased letting-go. Letting go and letting all things pass is fundamental to my philosophy, but you can find yourself clinging without realizing it. In Son's case I probably have, missing that "Golden Age" of closeness. It's time to subconsciously as well as consciously embrace the change and refocus on the pursuit of the destiny of this particular character.
