    Thank you, thank you, thank you for writing this. Wow. Almost my exact story. Now I have to get to the “I am not ashamed of my marital failure” part.

    You say it true. I especially like, “We need it all. The emotions and the verbs.”

    A helpless romantic sensuous,physical person, think women are wonderfully aoft and beautiful, self conscious, quiet.. passionate…worked hard at pleasing, tried hard to make things right….looked around eventually and I had disappeared…..wasn’t until I could take care of myself that I could feel the real intense love for someone else..im not talking a lustful thing….deep friendships deep connection s…im not sure if I will marry again…but it should would be nice to share my journey in life with someone who was able to stand,sit beside me non judgemental…but supportive

        You are an incredible writer Jill! The honesty you express, combined with the emotions that are so real the reader can feel them in their bones, is extraordinary! Call it a sixth sense if you will, but this reader has a strong hunch you are going to find that love you best describe as magical! Then someday, perhaps there will be a follow up to this story that gives your readers hope in their own chance of discovering that amazing experience, which today may seem as unlikely as finding a unicorn sitting on a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!

          Neil Gaiman said, “The world always seems brighter when you’ve just made something that wasn’t there before,” and there are few things that bring me as much joy as being able to share in a way such as you described, thank you. I will definitely write some follow-ups to this story, I have a feeling this sinking boat will find it’s way home in due time. Jill

            Look forward to it! The one who finds your heart is one lucky fella! I wish you all the joy of a thousand singing angels!
