Family Stories

I am going to see my family soon and will spend time talking about old times. These old times can be tricky and the way the stories develop and conclude, depend upon who is telling them. Details are all about perspective and current conditions it would seem.

My perspective is different from the overriding perspective of the group because they all live near each other and socialize on a regular basis. The old family stories have evolved for them as a group even though each one individually wonders how the group got it so changed from the actual event or incident that they remember.

My little brother, the baby of the family, turned fifty last year. So as we are all a little long in tooth these days the recollections could be a little less reliable; especially after dinner, over coffee, after wine.

It will be interesting even though inaccurate. Luckily I’ll be there to set everybody straight. Wish me luck.
