A last supper
Anne and I had a last supper last night. It was the 11th anniversary of us meeting and we had our favourite dinner -- lamb cutlets with salad, bread and red wine. It was meant to be a farewell dinner to our relationship but it was not at all sad. It was great night, actually.
It's not really a last supper as we will still be seeing one another periodically. We are both happy with that.
What sent Anne and me apart is my declining energies as I got older. These days all I want to do is sit in front of my computer all day, whereas Anne still wants get out doing things and going places. Perfectly reasonable.
The new lady I had in my life didn't last long but I have a couple of other possibilities in mind. I even got a message from an Ekaterina -- a beautiful Russian lady. But it turned out that she still lives in Russia -- which was no good to me. Interesting, though.
