A good day in many ways, nevermind that it is still Mercury retrograde. I realized that I really have spent the last three years at my desk, and know that is something that cannot be repeated. Dinner out with himself provides an opportunity for a lengthy discussion about nannies, au pair, and strategic retreats for dad in the house. I wasn't uncomfortable with the topic or unspoken undercurrent of the discussion, a revelation indeed. It was a day when I could see the various threads of the life I'm working toward coming together, however briefly, to create a beautiful pattern.
