My eyes have not been able to pull away from this picture for days. I am memorized by the different meanings that I interpret within it.
I feel a loneliness, but also love & hope as well. It’s strange to feel such a mixture of emotions at the same time.
I am alone, yet, I am not. My husband and I are in a similar emotional situation.
Being married to a man in prison has been the most challenging, and yet, the most rewarding thing in my life. This amazing man is unlocking my mind, just as I am unlocking the world for him.
When I put these pictures side-by-side, I have an entirely different perspective. To me, these pictures and what they represent are easily interchangeable between him and I. We are teaching each other so much about the world, the mind, and the heart.
Our marriage truly has a unique window that we use to unite & connect. Our views are felt, experienced, and seen through each others eyes.
Between those two pictures, I place this bridge:
This bridge connecting our worlds is life-changing for us both. We use it frequently in our relationship. It is safe, sturdy, with a firm foundation built out of love, understanding, patience, and comfort.
I am blessed to have such a beautiful marriage.
