mother's day 2013

Hi, Mom!

In a few hours we’re gonna Zeta out and see Bette’s parents, so I thought I’d come see you first.

I really miss you, Mom.  I didn’t start the family I thought I would last year, but that’s all right.  Things have changed a lot in a year.  I could really use some advice.

I’ve got that Grayson wanderlust again.  Although, I guess it’s not really a Grayson thing since it’s yours.  You know, i just realized I never knew your maiden name.  I guess that really makes you a Grayson.

Anyway, I feel like I’ve…  I should be happy where I am.  I’m stable.  I’m not falling.  I’m surrounded by people who love me.  But I just want to leave it some days.  How did you and Dad handle it?  Was the movement of the circus enough to calm it down?  Or is that why you’d get anxious those nights, because you couldn’t move, couldn’t fly?

Kinda funny how the Townie wanted to move more than the circus boy.  I guess in some way that makes sense, though.  Rromani blood looks for a place to settle; yours looks for places to go.  Now I’m torn between both of them.

I’m gonna go take a nap now, Mom, before we have to leave.  Come talk to me?

I love you.  Happy Mother’s Day.
