Decline. A man visits his mother late at night on his way home from work. It's not where he wants to go but he is obligated. So he goes and the story that unfolds is a short and heartbreaking look at a mother-son relationship on its way out.
Strangely, I seem to have included several mother-son stories in my reading this week without even knowing it. The comparisons this has allowed me to make is refreshing and unexpected. I wonder what the universe is telling me by sending me into this reading direction. I guess we'll see what next week holds in that regard.
