One of my daughters has a tattoo. I hate it. I hate the generational gap. A gap or a chasm? When I was young, I liked to believe that there was no huge discrepancy between my way and the way of my parents.
An illusion. Wishful thinking, I confused their inability to resist, their lack of words, their fear of confrontation, with a tacit acceptance. Honestly, I knew what I was doing and I am confident today that I’ve made the right choices back in the ’80s and the ’90s.
My parents often said to me that “you do whatever you want, anyway” and this is true, whether I paid attention to their unspoken doubts or not.
Thirty years later, I find myself in their shoes. And let me tell you that the feeling is not good. Pondering the emotional against the rational, I have to admit: “let my kids do whatever they want to do.” Why didn’t I pronounce this statement three years ago? Why did I mind about having some control over my kids’ choices? Why did I wish for my way instead of theirs? There’s a library brimming with tomes in Vienna about this matter.
I want to get together with my tattooed daughter, to listen to her and navigate an archipelago of shattered dreams and wasted hopes. Maybe we could reach a desert island where to dry our feet next to a steaming cup of coffee.
I don’t know. I just want peace, because justice goes way above my league.
For you, the reader enduring my venting, I’ve got a little present, coming straight out of the beautiful islands of the Adriatic Sea, right from atop the picturesque rocks of the Croatian shores.
