But could I survive even 80% of what I went through now?
A widow friend said to me as I sobbed that day, “Just know, if you could survive losing Patrick, you can survive .

” All those paralyzing sensations – it’s called FEAR. Coyote in the old Road Runner cartoons, the one who runs off the edge of a cliff into thin air, and everything is fine – that is, until he looks down, at which point, he plummets to the earth, and hits in an annihilating plump of dust. The first time my now-fiancé, Albert, and I parted (as we lived on two separate coasts) after a wonderful, but intense (for me) time, I spent the next two mornings sobbing inconsolably for hours in private. But it had only been a few years since my husband had died, it was later that I realized that the separation had triggered all my fears, my emotions, the pain of, once again, having someone taken away from me.
Cause when you fall in love – you realize how just how if things go terrible wrong. Yes, your mind tells you that you can’t stay up there forever in this complete and total bliss.

To I mean, people think I’m brave because I work with horses, fly an airplane, and other things.
