Love always,

I pulled Richard Dawkins' The Ancestor's Tale off the shelf a little while ago, a volume I had not perused since, well, some time prior to the inscription quoted above.

"Love always." Two days after she penned those words, I tossed her out of my life forever. I wonder what other surprises may lurk among my shelves or files.

I opened an old book the other day, and a bunch of pictures of an ex-girlfriend fell out. It was pretty awesome, actually.

That Reminds Me ...

Prior to Laura, I was involved with a Chinese woman (the one who got me writing again, last November), one with very long hair. For a good year-and-a-half after she was last in my apartment I would find strands of her hair every time I swept or mopped the place.

I suppose what struck me about Laura's inscription (which I hadn't known she had done), was that it suggests her feelings for me were more complicated and perhaps deeper than I, in my post-betrayal pain, had been willing to consider.
