  1. Thanks for this, Wesley. Don’t I know where you’re coming from. Many visits to the home in Oslo, where my Norwegian aunt spent her last days, becoming more and more terrified by a world she couldn’t recognise, made me realise the horror of not being allowed to die with dignity.

    And then there was my mother, who wouldn’t help herself to the point where she couldn’t be left alone. Family complications led to her being consigned to a home that was pleasant enough but that she hated, and I hated myself for not being able to look after her. It’s not easy. The experiences led me to write a short story, which I take the liberty of linking to here.

      Sorry to hear that and thanks for your input, Bryan. You know, you wander into these kind of subjects, without knowing having a clear idea what you’re going to write about, or how much feelings you’ve been keeping down about them. Even when you’re not affected directly by the issue. It’s just another ugly development of ‘progress’ and lasting too long on this planet. But cheerio.
