Chapter 4: Hindsight [2021]

on August 13, 2021

It would probably be easier for me, emotionally, to write this story as a novel, to change our names, to make various wishes come true, to somehow fix all of the things that needed to be fixed, to write something neat and tidy. But I think the auto/biographical nature of this story is necessary; after all, I have blogged about it for many years.

Anthony must have thought a hippie was at the front door all those years ago.

Julie must have thought the cowhand had answered the door all those years ago.

I will never forget the feeling that washed over me that moment when he opened the door and said hello gruffly. It was as if I had entered into a rough draft of a Mills and Boon novel and somehow ended up in Narnia.

Happily lost. Happily found.
