A few years ago I posted the photos I am putting up here today. They were a huge hit with my readers and followers, and it’s easy to see why. The young man in the photos is so beautiful. He’s on the cusp between boyhood and manhood, and one instinctively knows he will be an amazing man in just a few years. And that a-shirt looks perfect on him, doesn’t it?
I slept until 8:30 this morning, even though my alarm went off at eight I just didn’t want to get out of bed. But now it’s nine AM and I’m ready to get on with the day.
I spent the better part of last night editing one of my books that is due to be published later this year; it still needs a few tweaks here and there. I ate dinner in front of of the TV, watching a left-wing talk show.
When I went to bed last night I think I fell asleep in about five minutes; I was tired, not physically but emotionally. I regret to announce that my seven-year relationship with my boyfriend has ended, and the whole breakup has worn me out. My boyfriend is an amazing guy; I can’t say enough good things about him. But our priorities in life have diverged to the point where living together doesn’t make sense any longer. It’s a sad turn of events, but I have seen it coming for a couple of years, and now it’s time to turn the page and get on with life.
I have been through breakups before, several times throughout my long life. There’s no easy way to deal with it; you just have to let the passage of time heal your heart. I know I will survive this, and who knows what waits around the corner?
Have a nice Tuesday, everyone.
