I recently posted a statement about my divorce here. I ran it by my closest adviser/friend and two local/regional church leaders who I trust, making the changes they suggested before I made it public. And I posted it here in an effort to inform my friends and family beyond the immediate circle of those few I had the emotional energy to personally call. Those folks who needed to read it have no doubt done so by now. My oldest child was on Google recently and found the statement while looking for something else. So I’m posting this poem instead, in hopes the next time they search, my children will find this:

i carry your heart with me (poem by e. e. cummings)
