Today is my Wendelin's 60th birthday. He is my ex-husband, the father of my 3 daughters. We split in the traditional way (is divorce a tradition?) 17 years ago. This past Christmas, we all spent a week together in his house. It was cold outside & the wood stove is in the living room, so we mostly all sat there, eating, watching movies, opening presents, loving, kvetching. I usually got up first, but Wen got up soon after & there we were together, taking care of business: tending the fire, making coffee, feeding the dog. I don't really know how he felt about waking up to me sitting by the stove every morning. It was hard to tell.
I love this video. I think it is supposed to be tragic but I find it really heartwarming.
Wen just got a facebook page, just in time for his birthday. I posted this to his page. I hope he gets it.
I remember when we were still together & only had one kid & how we both went to see this channel who laid his hand on my solar plexus & told me I was stabbed there by a deer antler in a past life by Wendelin after he had exposed me as a witch & then I got a horrible rash, right there where he put his hand on me. It turns out I had died out there in the tundra, in that lifetime, after being stabbed & left in the cold. It was a reindeer antler. The channel also told us that we had known each other for a long long time, longer than that life, & that at one point we were scientists in Lemuria & that, together, we had invented the color blue.
