Relay – information, a message, an opinion
Shun – ignore, avoid, abstain
Ship – export, direct, drop
The thing is with relationships, they all had to start somewhere. There is always a beginning. Our beginning began with our parents coming together, without them, we just wouldn’t be here. We may not live with our biological parents, but their DNA is part of us, however, does it define us?
Having had my own own children, lived with my own biological parents and looked after many children belonging, biologically to others, the answer is yes and no. Nature -v- Nurture, the debate is ongoing, depending how you look at it no? I am no expert on the matter at all and only speak from my humble opinion on the matter and from my own experience of being a person in a relay shun ship with all those around me.
By the time I came along there were already 2 other before me, my brothers, aged 1 and 2. We were like stepping stones. Three children under 3 and my mother was only 21 and my father was 24, but this is how it was in those days, some 50 odd years ago. Everyone got married young and had their babies young. What stresses and strains would that have had on their relationship, back in the 60’s, two Irish people, living in a strange land, England, married with 3 children? This I will explore as the blog goes on. Enjoy.
