More later. For now, just that I'm often happy, but with a background sadness that comes from being alone. I have good friends and some very close friends - and grown kids who love me, and clients who keep coming back to pay me. My life is a meaningful one, and there's good times and challenge and occasional trips... But I miss deeper closeness, with someone whose life is emerging alongside of me. Whose discovery I can share, and feed, and encourage. Who likes to play, and be silly. Who can say what's true, without backing away. I suppose that's what I want most - the truth.
