So many journeys may the sun and moon Make us again count o’er ere love be done!

Here at the café I’m writing in, they’re playing an album I listened to a lot well over two decades ago. It’s one I haven’t heard in ages. Many journeys of sun and moon have happened since then.

I was certainly a much different person then. I can’t imagine loving any one person throughout that journey, throughout those particular passages of sun and moon. I did love my friends throughout that transition – a good many of the dearest ones remain so. But to be partnered, watching sun and moon for thirty years, particularly those youthful 30 years, well, that’s harder for me to imagine. Most partners in that period lasted about two moons before our love was done. Sometimes it’s clear when a particular love cake is BAKED and ready to come out of the oven. And sometimes you might have the sort of love that cooks slowly and may never need to come out of the oven.
