So. Um. Huh.

Well.

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."

You've my deepest sympathies.

It's odd, but even though we've never met (indeed, I don't even actually know what you look like), I feel like a good friend has just told me their marriage is over. I've viewed your artwork and read your writing, and followed your life through your journal here for so long that I feel like I know you (even if you don't hardly know me from Adam). I feel crushed and depressed on your behalf. I'm very, very sorry, even if it is all amicable and congenial.

I know it won't make it all better, but let us know when the best time to buy some prints would be. Despite being a long-time admirer, I never actually have before (mostly because until recently I was too poor). I already intend to get a copy of your book when it does finally come out, but I'd like to do my part to try to make sure you're not struggling with practical things on top of emotional ones.
