9/23/12 featuring Starting Over

Hi Sixers and friends. I appreciate your comments as I continue with Starting Over. Emily and Patrick marry. She finds he is a complex troubled man letting his past interfere with their future. In this scene Patrick explains himself.


“I want you to know that I’m through looking in the rear view mirror at my past. You miss what’s right out in front of you, within reach. I’m through beating myself up over well-meant intentions gone wrong.  Now I promise you, my precious wife,” Pat stopped walking and faced her, “I’ll love you and take care of you always. You accepted me from the beginning at face value for who I am and who I could become. Thank you, Emily, I’ll never let you down.”

  1. I don’t like hearing a guy say, “I’ll never let you down.” Inevitably, they do. I wonder what his troubles are? Did he look at her when he said this? My guess, his gaze shifted and couldn’t look her square in the eyes.

  2. It’s hard to believe such big pronouncements. Promises are easy, actions are much harder. A person doesn’t change that quickly.
