Maritally speaking I had a long and in many ways quite lovely union, which ended (for you-know-how-impossible-to-describe reasons...no way to give a brief outline) amicably 3 years ago. Divorce is almost final (we're just not good with filling out forms!), but emotionally it happened when we separated. Two wonderful kids who are in the "grown-up" range and we see a lot of them. Too bad OKC doesn't give a "separated" option for people who are superstitious about "separated" vs "divorced"... I've had people flip out on me about not having signed on the dotted line yet (???)
The key thing for me, right now, is that I feel younger than I am. I know there is much more adventure and wonder yet to come...and I want to be hard at it until I can't do it anymore.
