Hi Fan Base,
So, I've been struggling here to figure out a way to post the past six weeks in some kind of accurate way, and I've had an impossible time doing so. This is what you should know: My husband and I have seperated, and I've finally realized within the past few days that I truly want a divorce. I'm figuring out this single mother thing, jiving with grad school, sort of winging things in some sort of fashion. I vascilate frequently between feeling grief, a slow and deep sadness in remembering the way things were, the way things might have been different, and an immense feeling of relief. And a hunger to do things differently.
I wanted to write about this, fit it into the narrative structure I've established here. But some things resist that kind of treatment, despite all of our best efforts, and this is one of them. It felt coy to announce the seperation in any other way than this.
