As late as the 1950s, divorce was a scandal, “shacking up” was how “white trash” lived, abortion was an abomination, and homosexuality the “love that dare not speak its name.” Today, half of all marriages end in divorce, “relationships” are what life is about, and “the love that dare not speak its name” will not shut up.

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” Dickens sure has a way with words unlike any other writer, ever. He can explain what you feel but don’t know how to coalesce the words. I can feel his statement resonate through my head, although at the moment more with the latter of the two parts of his sentence.
A woman has truly wrought all hell on my life but I have no intention on ever making her feel bad about it. It probably doesn’t matter anyways since I won’t ever speak to her again but I just wanted to get that out. That I truly don’t want her to have any guilt. Maybe one day she’ll read this. Probably not.
