I’m not going to start this blog the same way many people do these days with a pre-emptive conciliatory statement to try and keep people from getting upset. My observation is that such efforts are usually futile.
Did you know that many, if not most, people think of their lives as a story?

Well, the return to school is bearing down upon us. We all knew the day was coming, and the expected tensions are high.
Kids are cruel. I remember when two friends told me in grade 5 that I walked like a girl. It bothered me for months. I remember walking down the hallways of Parc La Salle school trying to walk differently than what came naturally to me.

Let me begin by stating a fact, there isn’t a painless way to end a marriage. The idea that two people, who were living together, presumably in love at least at some point, and having children together, can end that relationship in a clean, painless way is a pipe dream.
