Joe Camilleri and the Black Sorrows
may not be everyone’s idea of
stillness, but it worked for me this
I came home last night to a long-
drawn out dispute between a family
member and their partner, in my front
room. My bedroom is three feet from the
front room. No sleep for me until they
took their fight to their bedroom, and
reduced the tears to hissed whispers that
I’d come from teaching a yoga class,
where my soothing voice took the
students through an extended yoga nidre
and meditation, and had three of them
fall asleep. The irony was not lost on me.
I could not let myself get caught up in
the drama. There was a difficult decision
to be made, and I could have no part in
it, no matter what I privately thought of
the situation. It would not be their first
hurdle, nor their last.
I remembered, all too well, my own
struggles in relationships. I took to my
bed, which almost vibrated to the sound
of argument. I could react several ways.
Rush out and wade into the fight. Calmly
state my opinion and sail back into
my bedroom. Ignore the whole thing.
Leave the house. Demand they leave
the house. Hope that an alien invasion
was forthcoming shortly, and that all 20
somethings would be abducted. Beg
that they stop, using tears. Tell them they
were upsetting their puppy (who was
currently tearing apart newspaper
in my bedroom, quite happily and
enthusiastically). Pray to the gods. Do a
