The Good Life

The Good Life

I’ve been around. I’ve lived in Chicago; Erie, Pa; Norfolk, Va.; Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I’ve been to Phoenix, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Antonio, Fort Lauderdale, New Orleans, Nassau, Bahamas, St. Thomas (Virgin Isles), Naples, It, and Des Moines. I’ve been married three times, and lived with three others. But in all of that, I always come back home to Cedar Rapids and the one woman who loves me.

Here I am accepted for who and what I am. I am not judged if I have a meltdown. She is there, ready to pick up the pieces. This woman is amazing. I’ve left and come back too many times. I don’t know what I was looking for but know it’s right here. I think the depression has gotten so bad that I would cut and run at a moments notice. I’ve stopped running.

What I have here is an ex-wife that cares, that understands me, that loves me. I’ve been many places, seen a lot, and met many. But the good life? It’s right here.



  1. Sounds like you are home at last and know it this time. Good. I’m happy for you.

  2. It is about time you realize what you had there!!! Rose is a good woman. Maybe it’s time she got the love from you she deserves. You think?

  3. What a blessing for you to come back to someone who undertands and accepts you as you are! Sometimes we don’t know what we’re looking for until we leave it and come back to it. Congratulations on finding that out!

  4. How wonderful to have an ex that you can still call a friend, someone you can go too.

  6. Wow. You have been around.

    I lived in Norfolk, VA too. I was born in Portsmouth.

    I was thinking lately about the places I’ve lived and how it wasn’t just a place – it was also the time – – the times I lived in when I lived in that place. I’ve changed so much and the times have changed so much…if I went back to that place, it wouldn’t be the same. It would be either worse or better. Probably better now that I’m a bit wiser (I hope). –BobbyBobbyBobby from Twitter.
