Each relationship has brought its own nirvana, its own dip into transitory hell and its own exhilarating power. Twenty years ago, ten years ago, even five years go - what I learned is how little I knew. One might argue only half from the half-faced woman. I do not have all the answers. But these things I know for sure.
To boldly dance with the dark side of another human being is to know them courageously. Their courage, not yours. When you trust your demons in the hands of the one you love, that's the beginning of intimacy. The journey to the light - together - is the end of innocence.
