my husband

May 30, 2012 Posted by the writer

You know, blog family, sometimes I get so caught up with daily crazies that I don’t place enough emphasis on the most critical life occurrences taking place.

Like my husband, for example.

Around eleven weeks ago, a stranger and I ended up on the same block. I invited him to New York City for no other reason besides knowing at first sight that he and I were supposed to meet.

We haven’t separated since.

Something I find entertaining is that while I have attempted to express my elation here and there, the inability of many local humans to rejoice in any type of happiness or divinity which does not offer personal, immediate benefit seems challenging.

I wonder why that is?

In 2009, I started this “blog” off heartbroken in Australia trying to figure out how I would escape. Today I live in Manhattan, support myself independently as a Writer, and am now married to someone who essentially appeared out of thin air and blessed my world with wondrous emotions I spend each day seeking descriptions for.

Since Tim and I have been together, I’ve noticed a decrease in phone calls and an increase in blog traffic. I find this somewhat voyeuristic…

Tim is bloody amazing cult collective, considering how wild my last few weeks have been – I felt the need to explicitly express this. He’ll read this post at some stage, blush and say something like, “Babe. That’s embarrassing…”

Then I’ll smile and stare at him, which is what I spend most of my free time doing lately. I hope your day is filled with smiles too… the more I smile, the easier it is to sift through what to keep close and what to let go.

I’m keeping Tim close.

    Hey Gretchen! This is such a lovely post. Congrats on finding your wonderful one. Will be so excited to hear of the celebrating you do in August with Bell and Lisa in town to meet him and reconnect with you 😀
    I’m now in Brisbane rather than Melbourne, and these lines in your story resonate the most “the more I smile, the easier it is to sift through what to keep close and what to let go”. Congrats to you and Tim xxx
