I really miss TNG. I did not know this would be so hard, but every day I have to stop myself from calling or texting him, and often failing as we have certain social obligations I have to decline for us, or stuff I could not find that I last saw at his house. Stupid stuff, but stuff.
Today I have “lashed” myself to the mast, but I am intensely aware of his absence — his lack of text/email today hurts. He said he needed space so he has it but it hurts.
