In 2003 I started blogging. I was alone again for a year by then, and had bought a small condo and fully expected to sit in the chair in front of the TV by the window until they found my rotting corpse 50 years hence. It was to be the Long Road to the Sea. Except in 2003 I met someone and eventually got married to her—life started back up for me in earnest. It's a year where I spent most of it living alone and recovering from an emotionally devastating relationship. Near the end of the year I was laid off three days before the arrival of my fiance in Canada. Gack, what timing!
