how is he?

it's hard to believe he almost left this life.

that time feels like a bad dream i'm trying to remember after waking. very scary and very realistic, but not reality anymore.

he says that after he told me his secret lost its power.

so he goes to an addiction recovery group meeting sponsored by our church. and he met with a counselor several times. and he is taking some anti-anxiety medication. and he has come to the conclusion that his past is sad but his present life is very happy.

he and i are terribly in love.

today he was installing light fixtures upstairs and i brought my textbooks and curled up in a blanket across the room. the kids were content watching a movie downstairs and we weren't even talking but later we both agreed that it was a perfect moment.

we were coworkers first, before we were lovers, and something about those years we spent side-by-side has solidified a special joy we feel when we are in a shared space doing productive things. doesn't really matter what.

i'm glad that i can still share his space. i almost couldn't anymore.
