Call in to speak with the host
In my book, TWO EXTRAORDINARY LOVES, I describe the first 18 months of Marie’s and my extraordinarily passionate love. In it was an almost equally passionate love for ours and other’s children and when we had our twins, our love for them. I call our children - magical. The intensity of our physical love for the other has been to many, unbelievable. I didn’t make it up. It wasn’t all smooth and beautiful and we had such a volatile relationship it was on the verge of serious violence.My ex’s parents, my ex, Marie’s ex, financial problems, legal problems, work problems, and major differences in education and beliefs about the nature of reality complicated our lives far beyond just our first 18 months together.
I used to smile when I saw a couple of old people hanging onto each other - was it for balance, comfort, security? Now, at 81 and 80 I know it is a complex and real - and gentle love. If you’re already old you may identify with what I ‘ll say, if you have young or aging parents, I want you to realize that getting older is not something to fear, but can be welcomed - if you do the work to earn it. Marie and I have earned it and are basking in our gentle love (still with passion) and the love we have for our children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren who reciprocate it constantly.
