Shivered my timbers
Being addressed as uncle
We are family
Yes, but by Spirit not blood
Where we came from we are one

It is the spirit which joins us all together.
Now you and I may recognise that, but I meet those who, sadly, do not.
It is sad so few even care to become aware of what is blind to them.
I live in hopes. (At least at my more positive moments. 🙂
Ahh, everyone is Auntie or Uncle here on the Hawaiian islands! 😉
I don’t handle “family” too well, I’m afraid. Whenever someone treats me as family it is always a small shock.
