Most of the time I wake with a brutish, sudden start. If I look at my second husband’s overly complicated alarm clock, it will say 3:33. To be honest, I’ve almost quit looking at that plastic mess of dials and sliders.

I live with certainty that my first husband is my timepiece. In this, he allows me opportunities to witness and connect with him.
