Today is the second anniversary of my divorce. I can remember that day, standing with my ex- in front of the judge, watching almost twenty years of a relationship disappear in a heartbeat. I remember wandering through downtown, just walking and enjoying the sunny day. It was difficult not thinking about the hearing.
Don’t cry for me, Mississippi. I’m not sad, disillusioned, or down-hearted. I’m hopeful, enthusiastic and curious about the future. I have had wonderful experiences, met wonderful and amazing people, and learned so much about myself. My life has been a roller coaster ride; up, down, switching back and forth, and loop-the-loop. The carnival is in town… Let’s see which ride I try next.
