Have you ever felt that

helpless feeling or

that feeling of being helpless?


Like you can’t help and there is nothing

to be done except watch and stand by

for the next instalment of “It’s going wrong”.


Have you ever experienced anger

because nothing you seem to say

or want to do matters and your

opinions and ideas are just ignored

and become a routine in the musical, “Are

you actually there, ’cause I never

saw you”?


If you have, then join me

in praise of being in family life,

in praise of the grand invisibility

of being in a relationship.
