3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
A happy settled family day at home where I never left it's four walls. For a weekend worker like me it was a real treat to have a Friday off and I did everything I wanted to do.
Of course because of the way darkness and light are intertwined, there's always just a little darkness to keep your feet on the ground, and I'm still smarting a little from my last encounter with Daughter. However, it was an important encounter in that I said what I needed to and any illusions I had about Daughter's mindset were suitably eradicated. It is time to completely accept how it is and move on.
