a subtle thing

It's a subtle thing. Writing something down, saying it out loud.

The shadow I felt as I wrote my last post fell away as soon as I wrote it. I feel once again like a partner in crime and in life with my husband. Isn't marriage a mysterious, bewildering thing?

It really is, Jennifer. I used to go walking with a friend on a regular basis. We spent much of that winter walking around the track and she complained non-stop about her spouse and it seemed to me that they were heading for a split. We sort of drifted apart and I ran into her and asked how things were going with him. She said, "Oh? Was there ever a problem?" I reminded her about her walks and she said, "Oh, yeah, well, you know that's one of those things with marriage."

I think it is. I know I'll always be with D. We've weathered stuff. I never thought I'd spend my life with someone. But I've been with him for 20 years now. Marriage is, indeed, a mysterious thing.

I'm glad you're back to being Bonnie and Clyde. ;-)

Your frank exploration of the doubts the can trouble marriage was brave and honest, and taken with this post illustrate that mystery that is marriage.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
