Today is a new moon, a time of new beginnings.
I have signed my last joint tax return, sent in the final papers to Mt. Hood and signed and had notarized the dissolution of marriage papers. It has been a bit of an emotional day for me, recognizing the finality of the life I once led. Even though I have been separated for seven months, most of my adult life has been interwoven with the life of my former partner. Not such an easy pattern to break.
