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."


Here's to your future, I just bet it'll be awesome. Glad you two are keeping everything congenial. Also glad Ben's there to keep two eyes on you : D
best wishes from a long-time fan in NZ

Wow. Um. Nothing really that one can say to that. I'm sorry.

Oh gods. I'm sorry, Ursula. *hugs*

What the... ? I could never see this coming in any manner. I always saw you two as a perfect couple...

Jeeze, good luck on that.

I offer you big wombat hugs!
I'm sorry to hear this, but I hope the best works out for you, and for James. Whether your roads go on separately or bring you back together, who knows, but I am sure life will lead you well, and you will make the best out of the road you take. And keep drawing all sorts of strange curious animals you encounter on the way. :)

Damn! Sorry to hear it, hon.
Smooth sailing to you.

Wow. 0_0
I'm sorry to hear that, I wish the best for you both.

I shall add my: damn the transition kinda sucks and I hope everything works out for the best, to the list you likely aleady have. I wish you all the support that you need to make this transition.

I really have nothing to say because I don't know you as a person and haven't been reading your entries for very long.

Instead, I offer you comic relief by urging you to participate in the ljdq. How's it work? Here's an example of the output, to start. It's funny, fun, teaches you stuff, and might possibly help keep your mind off of your problems while you're dealing with the practicalities of splitting property and money up.

Lacking any sage advice, comforting words that don't sound like a stalker, or the proximity to administer cocoa, I won't try to add a platitude about the emotional part of it. But for the tangibles...

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

That, we can do something about. Suddenly my spring birthday-shopping list has been entirely filled with your prints!

Best wishes.

My sympathies.

Luck and strength to you both.

Well...I realize you hardly write personal stuff like this but wow, I did NOT see that coming.

Hang in there, stay strong and all the best to you!


I have the impulse to scream "Don't do it!" at you even though I don't know you nor know a thing about the surrounding circumstances and thus have no basis for or right to give my opinion.
