Jealousy. And guilt. I can feel it. It's unspoken of course. Some of my close--no, most of my close, married friends, both women and men, have spoken it out loud to me. Truth: there is a part of them that wishes they were not married. I listen to my neighbor who sits on my couch periodically, for a respite from family. She gushes her problems. I listen and sip wine. I smile, and every time we can think of a way to spin it into a laugh, we do. Then she leaves. Is this part of my calling? Serenity.
