Life After Us

Life After Us is a series that I'd created in the 14 days that followed after my ex-husband and I had sold the house that had been our home for the past 6 years.

On June 17th, I locked the back door for the last time.  I let myself out through the yard, past the peonies about to bloom for someone else, and went out the garage door.  I watched as it closed behind me.

Two days later, I boarded a plane headed towards Tbilisi, Georgia, where I roamed unfamiliar streets feeling shattered and new.  It was if the axis of the world had shifted. 

On that trip, I finally gave myself the permission that I didn't even know I was seeking: the permission to just go out and live.
