Unhappy anniversary.Posted: July 11, 2015 Filed under: Lessons learned (or re-learned) | Tags: relationships Leave a comment
An anniversary. Of sorts. Not a happy one. A cautionary tale, perhaps.
Once, uncharacteristically, I followed my heart instead of my head. In the words of William Rivers Pitt, I threw the parachute out of the plane and jumped after it. The impact was predictable, I guess, inevitable and devastating.
Even so, I doubt I’ll ever get to feel again what I felt during that one perfect, pre-impact moment.
