Opal, so sorry you've lost two relationships at once. *hugs* I am glad you're at least still friends with SW and that you have others in your life to be with while Beloved is packing.
Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with envy, jealousy or fear. It is there most pure, perfect and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. -- Shelley
