FOUND: A Rational Thought

Old luggage at Arley railway station on the Severn Valley RailwayNot for the first time, she told me to pack my bags.

The first five years were good. The next four were with continuously increasing amounts of life support and, for the second time in four months, I was looking for somewhere to sleep.

I had twenty years of working hard at being nothing like my dad. I had to succeed at marriage; He was on his fifth.

It was late; too late to find a couch. I tried to sleep in the backseat. I was tired and cold. I let my guard down and a rational thought snuck in.

I was not repeating my father’s behaviour.

Later, when the sun had been up for a while, I went back to pack my bags.
