It's been some time since I felt capable of communicating articulately here.
The big physical life changes have passed, but the feelings will linger for the foreseeable future.
Rarechild and Catfish are no longer married. That is all I have to say about that. That's their business to speak of if they choose to, not mine. I only mention it because it is a truth and it changed many things.
I care about each of them immensely.
Catfish and I haven't spoken in months. Perhaps in time. I miss the company of my friend. He is a good man.
Rarechild now lives a few cities closer to me and it is a good thing.
Our lives continue to follow similar paths and we share as much life together as we can. We make good partners. That I have such a friend to help me navigate hard choices is a blessing.
I have more to say, but it will have to wait until next time.
