Matt Gemmell, writing on his site, describes a concert experience with his family and the estrangement of his brother. The writing is melancholy in its presentation with more than a hint of sadness behind experiencing one of the last few Mark Knopfler shows and experiencing it separately, but at the same time, as his brother.

I don’t know Matt. We’ve only ever corresponded via Twitter. I find the little insights into his family, his home, and his dog to be refreshing. I enjoy his writing and recommend his books.

Still, I feel for this man I’ve never met and hope the estrangement falls away.
