Steve,

Maybe this is a case of the holiday blues for you. Whatever it is I hope you can talk about it and let your friends here support you and help get you through.

Much love,
Larry

Sorry for your sadness, Steve, and I can identify with that intense feeling. You might try to establish a "new tradition" for T-giving and other holidays. It may be something your 'lost child' wished they had or could do when they were younger. In my neck of the woods it would be go to the Philadelphia or NYC Macy's Thanksgiving Parades. I'm sure your 'lost child' wanted to do something special on a holiday! Good luck!! Thinking about you and sending great thoughts your way!!

Steve,

I really like Howard's idea. Why not dedicate Thanksgiving as a day to do something really special for Little Steve? Begin tomorrow or the weekend even! Would you be up to discussing ideas?

Much love,
Larry

Steve,

I don't know your interests and inclinations, but I would say aim for something fun and/or creative, but not expensive - something that requires mainly an investment of time.

Here are some examples from my own life. I love music of most kinds, but especially the blues. I have been playing for years, and that still helps me. I also like poetry; sometimes I will just get a cool-looking anthology for a few bucks and curl up with it over a cup of tea. And sometimes I write poetry.

I am also a teacher and writer by profession, as you know, and I guess I am pretty academic and nerdy about many things. So I have started a book on CSA in world cinema. I got a grant to buy DVDs, but if that had fallen through I could have just rented them for cheap from Blockbuster, one at a time.

If I were going to be alone over a major holiday I think I would want to create a tradition for myself - something I could do year after year. How about taking Little Steve to a big toy store to look around, and then a cool meal somewhere - wouldn't have to be expensive. Or going on a hike or walk at some nearby place of natural beauty. Or go to an art of museum exhibition somewhere.

I think it's worthwhile for all of us, even if we're in a happy healthy relationship or have a busy family life, to do fun creative things stressing that we can also be interesting company for ourselves and that being alone doesn't have to cut us off from enjoyment of our time.

Much love,
Larry

Do
