Although we haven’t discussed it, today is a real milestone. There was a time when we both seriously feared we wouldn’t see it. It’s curious the way the past is absorbed and integrated. The intensity and fear we once felt, the utter dread, has long ago given way to the change in circumstances that have made this day possible. The low-key way in which we’ve marked it’s passing simply bears testament to how far we’ve both traveled since those dark days. So much has changed, and while the threat has not gone away, it has certainly diminished since then.
