Still in Pain 11/17/20

it’s stunning to me that after all of these years, I’m clearly still reeling from this loss, very hurt, and still way more vocal than I should be. Nine years, a heart attack, two job losses later, and many years of living off of the charity of others, and she’s still the one that hurts me.

The Summer Curse 8/29/20

This news joins the news that my father had passed away this year. A few years ago, I had learned that my mother died, the same year in fact that my dog died in the summer.

Two years before that, in the greatest tragedy of them all, in the summer I married her.
