Anniversaries…

Generally, anniversaries are supposed to be happy events. Days of celebration, or marking the clearing another hurdle on the way towards retirement. Today, though, is another type of anniversary for me.

One year ago, today, I was a married man. Right now, as I write this. One year ago.

One year ago tonight, by ten o’clock, I was a widow. One year ago…

And I am conflicted… between being happy about where I am now, and the outlook of things, now, and a regret over the loss.

But that’s going to happen… at any time… Maybe it’s my “brooding” Scorpio nature…. maybe it’s just “me”… But I still think about friends that I had years ago – some I haven’t seen in as much as twenty years – and have the “what if…” thoughts…

So, today is an anniversary, of sorts. Not really a “happy” one, but an anniversary nonetheless…
Woo. Woo hoo.
