Well, over the weekend it happened again. Two more bloggers "came out," declaring their not-completely-secret love and the male half of the couple flew over a thousand miles to move in with his lady-love. Both of these folks are in my neighbourhood at Vox. They've spent great gobs of time together due to one another's willingness to fly back & forth (and to flexibility in work schedules).
All that know them are very, very happy for them. Sadly, she's experienced a couple of deaths of close friends in a short period of time and many of us felt very badly for her--though thought highly of him when he dropped everything and flew to her side in her time of grief. I hope it works for them. She 's quite beautiful, outspoken, bright, a world traveller, an artist and furniture maker. He's not conventionally handsome, outspoken, bright, very quirky, hugely into music and his little dog, Rudy.
