The Beginning of Something Else

On June 1, 2007 I found out my husband and partner of almost two decades had been unfaithful to me since before our marriage, and had been having intercourse with prostitutes for 3 1/2 years. This is what happened next.

The secret

Had lunch with a dear friend today. She found out about her husband's long term relationship with another woman early last year.

She said, "Maybe life is kind of like a pencil sharpener, and all of us are just a bunch of pencils."

Now that's an insight.

I certainly feel as if I've had a layer of skin peeled off.

Yeah. I feel like I've had a layer of my skin peeled off, too. Maybe with some kind of acid. OR with a cheese grater.

Pencils ... ouch. Tenderness of fresh skin ... comforting.

I like that thought. What if the pencil fights the sharpener? How does that look...?

I think that addictions are maybe a way of avoiding the sharpener..
