i am a filmmaker's wife. my husband is a graduate student in film production. for the past few weeks he has been working as an assistant editor for a lifetime movie. he gets to assistant edit all night, like 12 plus hours a night, for five times a week.
that's serious stuff, and it means that i've been spending much more time alone lately. i have plenty of things to do, like studying, cleaning, writing, exercising, crafting, reading. but it's not the same without your sweetheart to help fill the empty space and the quiet noise. going to toastmasters, when there is parking available.
nothing is more fortifying than a kind embrace and a snuggle from your loved one.
