In Malaysia, we are celebrating 15 days of the lunar new year beginning January 23, with much ado. The expressway has been packed with tens of thousands of vehicles moving North and South depending on where Home is. I thought about the reasons for going home in that crazy traffic. Most return home for filial reasons, some with great joy and expectation, while others go home obligatorily. From these thoughts and from reading Hollis’s book about the second half of life, I came up with 5 lessons about life in families.
