Divorce Post #1, January 26, 2010

I can't accept that it is possible to be this lonely and yet my heart keeps beating. I have mantras I repeat daily. "Big picture!" "You can do this!" "You're the dad!" "Love will win!" "Stay positive!" "Stay alive!" Each day, each hour, is different.

I believe that divorce is the second biggest tragedy in the world, second only to abortion.

The place where my ex-wife is moving our children is the most desolate looking place. I "drove" around it using Google street view. It is all sand. No trees except for those big, ugly palm trees. No toys in yards. I want to raise our children in a nice little college town with oak trees to build treehouses in, and neighborhoods full of children to make friends with. A town with all four seasons.

I believe that love is the most powerful force that exists and I intend to stay as close to my children as possible. I will be there forever for them. We will survive this tragedy and we will be stronger for it.

Thank you for your kind words and concern.
