Merry Christmas Dude!
Great good in fact that I listened to it twice.
I send you my very best wishes from northern Thailand - have a peaceful, joyous and relaxing holiday.

Thanks for sharing that cathartic moment. I was living vicariously through it.

I think your reflections on your family concerns are very honest. I know I share some of the same ones. Do you over analyse? I don't know. Maybe the rest of us under analyse.

I have to admit, I sometimes think one of the things we have to do as parents is be hard enough on our kids to make them want to move out when the time comes. Even if it goes against our sense of wanting to take care of them.

I think my parents did that without thinking about it...

All the best in the new year.

In your podcast you mention your son wants to cross into Mexico.

All travel advisories are advising
for people to stay away from border towns.

Human life is just too cheap along the border.

Good luck!

Thank you all for the comments- perhaps I have some answers in the podcast I'm putting out today.

I agree about the Mexican border being too dangerous, and would much prefer my son didn't cross over- but aside from sending emails advising against it, there's little I can do. I think back to the things I did that my parents never found out about- but common wisdom says it was a safer world back then, 40 years ago.
