Hello! Thank you for posting and giving myself and others an opportunity to practice! :)
When I tuned in, i immediately heard, "Which one?"
I feel like he lead a double life. I get the name Don very loudly.
I can see him staring at his knick knacks while the world goes on around him. That may be literal, but I think it's mostly to suggest that he was very selfish and very self-involved in his own life with little care to others.
He was misunderstood. I don't think he was ever fully himself and he carried that resentment with him through his whole life. There was something career-wise that he wanted to do but couldn't and that devastated him. "Why should others be happy when I can't be ".
He's definitely upset that no one carried on his legacy. Legacy is big and bold here. I heard that very firmly. I'm not sure if it was a hobby or a business.
I don't know if, even in death, he understands how petty his squabbles were. He knows that he did not give you and the family 100% of himself. But he feels ambivalent towards this. Again the mindset of, "I didn't get to do what I wanted so I don't care about anyone else."
I also keep hearing the name James repeated over and over again. James james james.
