New love...

It's been a while since I've posted anything.  Caught up in my final term of college teaching, not sailing much because of weather and sails being repaired, and because I've been emersed in one of the most remarkable and improbable beginnings of my life.  But now it's time to share it, to admit how real it really is.

So meet Penelope and James!  Three weeks of emails and phone calls and it became clear to us that we needed to meet sooner rather than later.  So we did, closing the three-thousand miles separating us for the Veteran's Day weekend.  And it was more than either of us imagined it could be.  Truly a sacred coming together.  Happily we forsook all others, turned away from possible loves closer to our homes, and leapt into the promise of potentialities with each other.

So it's a new life beginning for both of us, a most improbable connection across a continent that has blossomed into true love in less than a month.  You may think us daft, but we are sure we are not.

For now we burn up the minutes on our phones, email incessantly, and dream of rejoining each other in mid-December, when I will head to Florida for a week and then she will come out to California for a time.  Beyond that ... well, love has its way.
