On Thursday it will be five years.

What an impossibly long time.
I’ve already passed the milestone of Nelson having been dead for as long as we were together. Then I passed the milestone of him being dead for longer than we were together. We had two years together. I’ve now had five of his absence.
Most of the time the pain has gone down to that of a bad toothache; you’ve never really unaware of it, but you can live with it as long as you accomodate it.
There’s no root canal for grief.
