I've decided not to say more; I know I have expressed my desire and have invited my son to visit me, or to let me drive an hour to visit him one evening while he is in my vicinity for the purpose of attending a wedding. I know these things--I will not see him. It will confirm to me that he feels no attachment to me or any importance in our relationship. I know that his demonstrated indifference will break my heart. I know life is sad. And, that relationships end. That they can not be sustained without reciprocity.
