So. Um. Huh.


This is not an entry I particularly wanted to write, but since it'd be weird if I didn't--I record so many details of my life, and it'd be pretty obvious eventually if I was leaving it out--it looks like James and I are splitting.

Yeah, kinda sucks.

We're doing a trial seperation first. It's all very amicable and almost desperately congenial, nobody's really at fault, but, well....we had a bunch of good years, we got each other's careers started, and I've got no regrets. Still, we're both obsessive workaholics, and after awhile we just grew apart. We're great partners on the practical stuff, but eventually that's not gonna keep stuff going. So we'll take a few months, get the finances worked out, and I'll find a place of my own and...guess we'll see where life takes us after that. I'm not sure if I can make a living on my own on art and writing, but I'll give it a damn good try, and more than that, one cannot expect from life.

I'm alternating between calm and wrecked, as one might expect. Still, I'm taking it pretty well. The nice thing about the axe falling is that you're not worrying about whether the axe is going to fall.

So...well, there we are.

Funny the way life goes, sometimes. But as Grandma used to say--"This, too, shall pass."

*adds her voice to the chorus*

Best of luck to both of you, wherever your paths may lead.

I'm so sorry.. :( I hope things work out for the both of you.

*sympathies and internet sweets* I'm sorry to hear you're going through a rough patch. I sincerely hope things work out for the best.

Whoa. Didn't see that coming.

Sorry about the turmoil, and good luck with the future.

I'm sorry to hear about it.

oh honey... i am sorry. regardless, i am sorry that you have to go through this. i wish you the wellness of yourself through this. :::hugs::

oh, and if you need a place to decompress in, our home is open to you.

Mine too, but my guest bedroom is in Australia. Along with the rest of my house.

We do have Echidnas though.

Oh, wow... I'll cross my fingers that you have a smooth road ahead, no matter where it goes. May Ganesh whack your obstacles!

I always thought you guys were a match made in heaven. All those funny stories - gay little anteaters are we (favourite James quote ever)...

I am sad.
Good luck! I'm too poor to run around buying art, but I'll put some of your stuff on my wishlist, so maybe I can indirectly help you.

Like everyone else, I'm sorry to hear that and I wish you the best of luck

I can't think of anything to say that hasn't been said, so I'll just add another voice to the general chorus.

Aw, hun! That just means it's time to embrace your inner warrior-orc-woman. In a non-violent, self-empowering kind of way.

Sorry to hear you are separating.
I am glad to hear it is amicable, though.
I had a similar separation with my first wife - we both still liked, and in some ways loved, each other... but we had grown apart and away from one another. While is still hurt, we were lucky, overall..
*hugs offered*
Don't forget about your friends, if you need a little help? (Beatles song in my head, now)

as has been said many times, I am so sorry. Wishing you peace and strength through this time. Hoping and praying for you, that everything works out for the best for both of you.

Oh man. I'm sorry to hear that.
