The week before he was murdered in New York City, John Lennon said in an interview that life was what happens when we're making other plans. I was planning a life with my girlfriend. She had other plans. And there are a lot of things I could say about that. I could talk about how her stated reason makes no sense to me. I could talk about how devistating it was to me that she didn't want a future with me anymore. I could talk about how close I came to dying. But none of it really matters, in the long run. All that matters is that she broke up with me, and I survived it, and now I'm trying to figure out where all the pieces go back together without her. And that's very, very difficult. But I'm working on it... one day, one piece, at a time.
