I'm getting divorced
I'm getting divorced. After 30 years of marriage. Well, free at last.

So I made this to describe the stages of my marriage. The idea with the opposing R's in line four is flatly stolen from a piece of work the american designer Herb Lubalin did in the seventies. He was very good at using elements of type in his designs. The rest made itself. I've used my beloved Illustrator, and the typeface is Berthold Baskerville.

This is how i cope with things. I sit down and make something.

RE: I'm getting divorced
Not sure if to say "sorry about that" or "congratulations".

Depends on how things were in the end, sometimes its unexpected, other times it's been a long time coming.

Hope everything works out for you though dude. Hug

I hope things work out as well as possible Heart

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

Best wishes Harvey. I hope it's amicable at least? Undecided

Love the typography, but sorry about your divorce.

I hope this opens up a better chapter in your life!

Thank you. And yes, it's very amicable. No shouting, no allegations, no third persons involved. No cheating. It's just a long dead relationship. I'm moving out in may, to an appartment in the same city. I just have to buy one first. We have a thirteen years old daugther, so me and the ol' missus will see one another on countless occasions in the years to follow.

What I most look forward to, is to be me. For the first time for ages. Just to be me. Just to do the things I like to do. Eat the food I like to eat. Sit quietly in my favourite chair with light over my shoulder and read. Listen to radio and music. Have friends come over and stay the night. Go fishing whenever I like. Buy a 13' jonboat and a 2.3 HP Honda outboard, and sit in hidden in the reedguard watching my float disappear. Go hunting for new personal bests for all the spieces I fish for. Go looking for promising stretches of my favourite rivers. Find new waters where I can catch tench and bream. Big ones, preferably. Sit through warm summers evenings fishing my favourite swims. Go trekking a lot. Maybe take up climbing again. Start playing tabletennis again. Buy a new tent. Go back to college and finish my nursingdegree.

And may the great Lord grant me the power of will to stay away from women. For many, many years to come Big Grin.

Sounds to me like it might give you a chance for a new lease on life.

Been there, done that, but didn't get the t-shirt - couldn't afford it. But I'm sure my attorney was able to use my fees to by herself a nice t-shirt... or a Rolls-Royce.

I just wanted to let you know that I love you even though you aren't naked right now. Heart
