Finishing Unfinished Business

40 years ago I left home vowing, "Never again." I put down roots in a city 200 miles away and only ever went back for short visits. For many years the crossing of my parents threshold brought me down with a migraine.

But now here I am again, living the old life (with differences- like I've got Ailz with me) immersed in the polite routines and pieties that used to drive me up the wall when I was a kid. Little demons keep popping their little heads out of the flowerbeds and I set my teeth and grin at them until they go away.
