Connections: January 24.17


SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAMy grandson, conspicuous by absence,

eventually made me curious

I’d seen him depart to the basement

where he couldn’t hear or see us.

Neither angry nor antisocial

he just wanted, I think, some space

and this is what I found

with contentment on his face.

A guy can love his family

and their hypertonicity

but also love a bit

of peace and simplicity.

  1. Yes, we all need a little space. My grandson needs his with a gaming system though. 🙂

    • Absolutely we all need some space. (Are you listening, airlines?) My grandson, like yours, gets his also with a gaming system, but that’s at his house. At Grandma’s house, THIS is the gaming system!
