sequel

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« My recent “my pledge” post makes a self-required sequel. I remain married, neither party has plans to file, we cohabitate with one another, and we have plans to grow old together. If I say everything is fine a reader with hunger for celebrity divorce news would remain hungry. I described a likely partial regret with Hana not attending Martha’s memorial. Of any of my blood relatives and married-to-blood relatives Martha and her brother (both dead) were most warm and welcoming, so it would have been difficult for Hana to skip Martha’s memorial, so our plan to attend is refreshed, and it feels good. Traditional funerals happen so fast with little premeditation, and in contrast a memorial like Martha’s delayed by the pandemic allows premeditation. Today I shopped on ebay for what I’ll wear, and marked three auctions to bid in the final seconds. Risky, but time allows risk. I had a decade-long blackout with my siblings including being excluded from a family reunion, then Martha’s 90th, and Martha’s memorial. Taking the time, thinking about details including drama with Hana about whether or not she’ll attend feels like a fitting tribute to Martha. »» 302-990-2346 blog

    Wow. Risky stuff Tom. You certainly like to live life on the edge with regard to relationships don’t you? Does Hana read this blog? If not, might someone else who reads it tell her? I don’t know a single woman in the world who would like this type of information shared to the world. If you’re marriage is in trouble and you genuinely want to fix it, I don’t think such a public declaration is going to help you much with that. If Hana doesn’t read your blog and there is no chance that she’ll ever see or hear of this, that almost makes it worse.
