I’m no heroine
I’ve been missing in action so long that perhaps you’ve even stopped reading me. But I haven’t forgotten you. I haven’t forgotten Divorced Doodling either.
Its Christmas, a hard time of the year, despite all the good cheer. Everyone thinks that other people are having a great time. Especially divorced people with fragmented families. But it isn’t really true, most of us are struggling with something or the other, despite all the gifts, the tongue tickling food, the decorations and the parties. Yes, we all are – families aren’t easy, relationships require adjustment. And yet we survive and enjoy.
Here is a beautiful song by Ani Di Franco.It’s a feminist song, but that doesn’t mean men can’t enjoy it too because we have all, men and women, been in that place where we feel ordinary, unheroic, stomped upon.
