Blocked!!

Ooh, that darn writer’s block! I’m finally seeing my therapist, and she has a writing assignment for me, but every time I sit down to do my “homework”, all I can do is think about my ex wife.  I’m supposed to be concentrating on my past failure in a relationship, but I’m stuck 6.5 years…

Oh hell, not the dreams again!

There has been a lot going on in my life the past few weeks, mostly involving my adult son. It was a serious episode, and his mom (my ex) needed to be involved.   Fortunately, everything is okay with my son, and that’s the best news. But I had a lot of interaction with my ex…

So many memories

When people find out I’ve been divorced for almost 5 years, they all ask me why I’m not dating. They don’t understand that I’m just not ready. I was with my ex for 30 years, from the time we dated, until the time she left me. That is over half my life. 3 wonderful decades,…
