for real for real

Happy Friday all! I think I fell in love again this week. Since being out of a ten year marriage over five years now, I realize I fall in love a lot.

I had a conversation with Rijn about this during her visit, we agreed it’s the Poet in me. Poets are always falling in love, when else can you really write poetry?

I don’t think it’s hard to fall in love, it’s maintaining it that’s the trick. To do that, it has to be a perfectly balanced relationship. I’ve never had that. However, there’s a new love who fell from the sky three days ago who seems unique and wonderful and makes me feel peaceful and erratic at the same time.

I’ve got my eye on this one.

In other news, book is popping along; work is wonderful; and I fucking love New York City. While my time to return to Australia dangles in front of me, not a moment passes that I don’t love being here and appreciate how hard I worked to do this on my own.

Never let anyone tell you “can’t”.
