Okay, I've been seriously dating for the last five months; but when I look back at the pictures I have saved over the years, the calendars I have saved, stored away (the ones that are special and I can't get rid of); the screen
savers of great beauties such as Great Lakes
ore carriers - obviously I've been having these feelings for a very long time.
During these months I have been in the company of many fine boats. A few showing their age. A few hiding flaws well, but when pressed in the "special" spot revealed "issues" that are beyond what I can deal with. A few of them more rich than I should be near. Some with a beauty that dazzles and a charm I can easily succumb to.
I've had the greatest pleasure of knowing a couple of the nicest; great loves that I wanted to keep and sleep on and live with and yet we had to stop seeing each other. There is always something that keeps happening. I know it is me. I know it is something that time will cure.
But what can I do? I know there is one (hmm, maybe more than one) which will be a forever love.
