Today is the anniversary of the divorce. Ahh, what a wondrously free year it has been. There have been times when loneliness was a problem; a slow reckoning that my life, during the holidays, is bereft of relationships. I sometimes work to remember that there was a comfort in wrapping my life around another person's expectations and the following through with tradition. It's important. Now that I've experienced a whole (get it?) year, maybe this year I'll work on devising new getaways: retreats, conferences, film fests. I don't think life without vacations is good. Snob! Think of all the refuges!
