On this Day of Winter Solstice

On this Day of Winter Solstice,

The date is forever emblazoned in my heart.


I had been living in my car for about 3 weeks, until it died.

Then I spent a week at Motel 6 thanks to my son...

Then 1 night with a family of a friend of mine...


I was out of places to lay my head...

I wasn't thinking clearly...

I was fresh from being locked out of my home of 7 years by the man I thought would be my "forever" (ps NOT my infector)

This "forever" man was dealing with issues of his own...going through what I now realize was partly pride, and partly male menopause (as I say manopause)...which he had not addressed, which cause irrational anger, etc. towards me...

He thought I was his "Eliza Doolittle My Fair Lady" that I needed fixing...I did NOT need fixing...
