Goodbye 2012: Last Lesson

I wanted to do a nice recap of My Fave’s of 2012 and I guess I can still do that on the first day of 2013. Since I’ve finally made it to the Sunshine State (Florida) after a long 5 days in Bawston visting my father (& his girlfriend), I’ve taken this day to do a lot of lazing around since my mother brings in the New Year in church and one can’t inconspicuously sleep there. Anyways, I’ve decided to go with her since last year around this time I spent New Year’s in somebody’s club and I felt uncomfortable, mad and over that whole scene.

5 days was the longest time I’ve ever spent with my father after 27 years of life.

I learned a lot about this man through observations, verbal exchanges and watching him in daily routine.

I came to Florida with a new-found respect of the work-in-progress relationship I have with my mother.

Last night after picking me up from the airport she comes in the room and has the ceiling fan going and then turns on a stand alone fan. I don’t like to be cold while I’m laying down so I go “Really though? it’s cold in here.” She says: “I’m going through the changes!”

I couldn’t help but crack up. She is a very unique lady, and she gets me. She doesn’t take my sometimes brash way of expressing myself as disrespectful. She laughs at my dry sarcasm. She sits in silence with me and knows that I’m observant and think a lot before I speak. And if I don’t speak…that means I don’t have anything to say.

I feel grateful to say that I have a parent who knows me. And accepts me. It’s not a perfect relationship, but it’s a relationship.

On another note, I wish everyone a Happy New Year! Please be safe out there and here’s to a prosperous 2013!
