A personal note

Those who have been following me on this blog or on social media recently know that I’ve been under a lot of pressure lately and have had trouble focusing on writing, or work in general.  About 3 months ago, my wife and I agreed to separate, and the past few months we have been preoccupied with finding new places to live and planning for our lives apart from one another.

Today, I finally (more or less) moved into my new townhouse, completing our separation, and it seemed a reasonable time to just let people know what has been going on.

I didn’t plan for or look for a separation, but I understand that my relationship with Beth had to end.  In any case, we remain friends and I hope we will remain friends as we move forward.  (We had dinner together tonight, if that is any indication that we’re okay with each other.)  I hope that those who have us as mutual friends will remain so.

I can honestly say that I learned a lot from my time with Beth, and that our marriage helped me grow and mature as a person. In fact, I would say that she helped me fully become an adult, something I struggled with for years. I will always be grateful for that, and consider those years together to be among the happiest of my life.  I wish her the best.

Now that the time-consuming move is mostly out of the way, I’m hoping to get back to writing some substantive blog posts in the near future.
