Have you ever wanted to distance yourself from yourself?

How do I look from a different nook? Am I a cool dude or a

dusty dud? My mom used to bring me up short with a sharp


Retort “Just look at yourself!” when she wanted me to see

myself as others saw me, and apparently It was not a good look!

As the years separate us further and further, I hear her voice


louder and with a clarity that increases over time.  It’s as though

she were in rhyme with me, still in her role of best friend to the

 very end. Now we send mental notes across the giant moat that


separates us and occasionally we fuss just like best of friends.
