Virginia Ironside's Dilemmas: The 'Auntie' problem

Dear Virginia, When our son was six years old, we adopted a girl of three. They became a loving brother and sister, and now she is a single mum with a son of 13. But our son has married a girl who won't accept our daughter as family and won't let our grandson call her 'auntie'. My son reluctantly supports his wife (they are childless). How can we maintain a relationship with our son and his wife on this basis? Yours sincerely, Freda

Leading article: Slow but sure change in Northern Ireland

There has been something of a balance of anguish for Northern Ireland politicians of late, as both republicans and loyalists have been bringing themselves to the point of making moves which are groundbreaking and risky. Movement has been so slow for the past year that it has at times resembled complete logjam. So many deadlines have come and gone, so many meetings held with no visible result, that the peace process has seemed devoid of momentum.

Inside and outside: that's a basic relationship in pictures. You draw a line around to make an enclosed area. The line is an outline, an edge. It marks the boundary between what's inside this area, and what's outside. It creates a distinct space, a defined entity - which can then be made to stand for some kind of creature or object, a cloud or a hole, whatever. But defining a two-dimensional area, establishing an inside and an outside, is the first step in picture-making. It can be made a source of drama in itself.

ROCK & POP: NEW RELEASES - Various artists Meridian 1970 emi iiii8

The early-1970s singer-songwriter tradition that Josh Rouse taps into is gracefully summarised here in a collection of tracks from the cusp of that decade compiled by the writer Jon Savage. Subtitled Protest, Sorrow, Hobos, Folk and Blues, it draws together underrated forerunners of today's alt.country scene such as Jesse Winchester and Danny O'Keefe, life-worn, lovelorn troubadours such as Nick Drake, Donovan, Loudon Wainwright and Meic Stevens, and the mature flowerings of veteran West Coast bands such as Jefferson Airplane, The Byrds and Steve Miller Band. These were some of the babies thrown out when punk changed rock's bathwater, and assembled like this, they give the lie to the great canard of punk being a necessary demolition of tired, pompous old modes. This presents a folk/rock scene bristling with diverse, vibrant approaches, from the blues surrealism of Little Feat's "Hamburger Midnight", to the dervish virtuosity of Leo Kottke's "Hear the Wind Howl", to the orchestral pastoralism of The James Gang's "Ashes the Rain and I", one of Joe Walsh's early experiments in broadening rock's tone and texture, before he took The Eagles' shilling. Highly recommended, not least for the inclusion of Danny O'Keefe, an overlooked talent deserving of a serious career reassessment.
