Thank you, Milli. I write a lot about my wife and the relationship we had. It wasn’t all roses but I’ve come to realize it was pretty damn special.

I sometimes suspect that losing her when I did makes me put her, and it, on a pedestal that prevents any sort of repeat performance. But if that’s the case, so be it. I loved her very much, and I miss her, every single day.

I’m not really sure it’s even fair to hope for something as great a second time around. And as I grow into this new found single life I wonder if I’d really want that again anyway. There are gifts to be found on all the roads we travel. The biggest gift of all might just be the opportunity to travel several different roads in a single lifetime.
