My family is unpredictable. I never know how they will react.
This time I was waiting for a lot of "we told you so", "you made a mistake" blah blah blah. And I expected a lot of whining because I did not come for Christmas or the New Years.
Instead I experienced a weird silence, like a fight was going to burst anytime. But it didn't. I was quiet and happy to be home. They were quiet and happy to have me home. Something happened in the family's dynamics. It was a nice change of reactions. If it all reflects my inner peace, I don't know it. Maybe it does.
The fact is I don't carry with me any bad memories from this trip. It was three happy quiet days with family.
Back to Athens tomorrow.
