On a personal note, I am remarried; second marriage. Every relationship, of course, is different. But I believe that divorce is never a good thing. Some may say, “Well, what if the person is in an abusive marriage?” or the like.

Half-way though the process – mid-crunch – the mind realizes what is happening and that there is nothing that can be done to alliviate the situation. I’ve often wondered what it would be like to be a snailContinue reading “Bark & Grill: Snails”
