In a different life, today…

In a different life, today... I might be celebrating 10 years with you perhaps still unaware that unhappiness isn't a necessary part of life ...or love assuming that the highs and lows are a personal fault an "I must have done something wrong" mistaken ideal one you never seemed to concern yourself with or seek [...]

Recent reflections, readings, and reactions to conversations brought back those thoughts...though I can't [...]
