I would not have fallen in love with someone who traveled. I don't think it would be possible. It is not in me to be left alone. I can BE alone, I can not be LEFT alone. Does that make sense to anyone but me?

I don't think it makes sense to my H. "You/re a big strong girl, you can be alone!" Of flipping course I can, but I chose not to, and you promised me that you wouldn't leave me alone. I can be alone, or not alone, but I cannot do both. It's one or the other.

Marriage is the triumph of imagination over intelligence. Second marriage is the triumph of hope over experience.
