  1. Nice story, Gary. Perhaps this couple should read Tennyson’s Ulysses:

    Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and tho’ We are not now that strength which in old days Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts, Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

    1. Hi Sadje,
      Yea – sad indeed. I was reminded of this just a few days ago when a family announced yet another surprise separation. Each one leaves a bitter taste of regret.
      Thanks for giving my story a read.

      1. Agreed – but sometimes one of both parties just refuse to grow up or act responsibly or treat each other well. Those situations that could be solved with sand paper instead get a backhoe with lots of needless pain and loss.
        We really are complex personalities . . .
