If things had gone differently — more compatibility, more maturity, a nuance or two or three here and there, events, patience, timing — this could have been my fate.
I took a different path, and so did my ex- Mary Clare. She is happy with her husband Bill, and their daughter Katie Rain (pictured on top of the link just there), living on Cortes Island. I waited, met Catherine, fell in love, moved to PEI, and didn’t become a hippie. Probably didn’t have it in me anyway.
Funny how things turn out.
