Mignon McLaughlin: In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything and two minus one equals nothing.
Ernest Hemingway: There is no lonelier man in death than the man who has lived many years with a good wife and then outlived her. If two people love each other there can be no happy ending to it.
I've been more out of sorts and lonelier over the last 9-10 months than I've ever been in my life.
However, I'm extremely appreciative of the many friends who in subtle, and not so subtle, ways have been so supportive as I continue to figure things out.
I have neighbors with whom I've been an acquaintance for over 20 years who are now friends.
That's been a really good thing.
