TIS A FAR, FAR BETTER THING

 

 

            Whoever  came up with that ‘tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all’ line was full of crap. Having surgery for a failing heart is better than dying for lack of the surgery. When you’re lost in the woods and have an arm turning black, it’s better to cut the sucker off than to die alone.  If you hear your child crying for help in the middle of a roaring house fire,  watching your skin turn crispy isn’t that bad a deal if you can rescue them to live beyond you.

            But loving, truly loving and losing the one you love for no good reason you will ever understand serves no purpose  at all. No Good purpose. It does provide a learning experience, but unfortunately, the lesson you learn is never worth what it costs you.

            For myself, I’d much rather have skipped the enlightenment, but I wasn’t given that option.

  1. When will the next chapter of When We Were Married come out. It has been nearly 2+ years since the last volume. And I for one want to know how the story ends.

  2. I look forward to the new novel. Also, like LJKutten, I am eager to read the continuation of the WWWM saga. Please sate that thirst!
