…And So It Begins
My previous post very briefly describes the brutal ending of my life as a married man. It ended against my will in a fashion very much against my liking. But, as one friend said to me not long after I entered free fall, this is a reset button. You have the opportunity to push it, will you?
The above picture is the day that I decided to hit the reset button. I started that day in the San Rafael Swell with 15 people I barely knew having a great time just hanging out in the desert. Then I drove 300 plus miles to Kanarraville to watch one of the most spectacular events I will ever have the opportunity to see, an annular eclipse. And I did it with family and friends. It was an amazing day, and one of the first days since my marriage dissolved that I truly felt happy.
The most important thing that I have learned through all that I have been forced to endure is that your family and friends, your real friends, will be there for you. I have reconnected with family that I had lost touch with for years. I have found friends from my past to suddenly be there for me with a joke or shoulder to cry on. New friends to share my life with. And the friends that have always been there… yep, they’re still there being the rocks that form the foundation of my life. Thank you to all of you, near and far.
But even with my family and friends there for me, I am the only one in control of me. And I have to accept that. And own that. And that’s where I am beginning from now. This is the reset on my life, where do I go from here? Who am I? What do I want? I think I know, but I have to find out. And thats what I intend to start documenting here. If you care to follow and see where this new life takes me, I’m happy to hear from you and share my life with you. If you don’t… well fuck you. I don’t need you anyway.
This is the new me.
