Nice Dreams Do Come True

Okay... I have been promised that yes, there will be a guest entry, though I don't yet know when. And that's fine.

Now, to bring you up to speed with the big mystery...

I haven't mentioned much about my love life (or lack thereof) for a while, at least not with any details. I did mention that Mr. Complicated and I went to a New Year's Party last night. What I haven't mentioned until now is that Mr. Complicated is here. As in, moved in with me.

For now we are only roommates, by mutual agreement. There were extenuating circumstances that kind of jump-started the timeline, things that I don't think belong on a public site. And while we are both open to more, neither of us is willing to go rushing in where angels fear to trod. This was sort of a compromise, but so far it's looking even better than I'd hoped. I'm still cautious, as is he. I think we've agreed to be "cautiously optimistic," all things considered.

In the interim, it's interesting to be living with someone again, especially when the only men I've lived with before, other than my father, were the two men I was married to. I know it's no big deal to most people these days; it's a BIG deal to me.

It's pretty darned nice just to have the company of someone who's not either my child or young enough to be my child. When you add to that the fact that the company is an attractive man, it's got nice beat all to heck!

Before - After

In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
