The inevitable finish

The most difficult idea for me to believe is that an ending, an ending to a relationship, is not inevitable.

Now, this is not a question of life and death — that is an insurmountable obstacle — but a question of starting a relationship with the sense, and acceptance, that it inevitably will be over in a time shorter than progression to the next stage.

I want to be married. I want to have children. I want to build a family. Somehow, though, I see every new relationship as inevitably ending before those things get in reach.

If I start with that, it will end. So, that’s my challenge for this year: to not start with the finish in mind.

How does one do that?

Raison d’etre

"Raw," she said. "I want something primal. I want something bare and naked. I want you to give me this life raw, unbidden, unhidden, free, fair, and true. Can you do that? Can you do that for me?"

One may only try.
