Two Eggs, Separated...
Separation, is an adventure in "found" freedoms - everyday, there is something to discover, like the difference between standing in line for the bathroom and having the bathrooms, for yourself.
One of the enjoyable benefits, of being single, is not having to share things, like the television remote, the toothpaste or the "last" cookie.
I find the thought of not sharing, very intoxicating and appealing, these days.
Not having to think of others, while you decorate and arrange your furnishings is a nice and unexpected, benefit. You can finally arrange everything according to your preferences - not having to think about placing things too high or too low.
This new "you" focus is like discovering yourself, as the main character in the Goldilocks story, where the music, lighting, chairs, sofa and bed are suddenly, "just right".
It seems during the dreaded and depressing first stage of marriage "withdrawal", some, or maybe most, of the wonderful, small changes taking place, go by unnoticed.
In the past few weeks, I've begun to enjoy (and find myself smiling about) the strangest things, like not having to ask someone what movie or cd, they prefer.
Now, when a recipe calls for two eggs, separated . . .I find, I only need one and that is, something to smile about.
