It was a dance sparking a connection which altered their lives, find arimidex cod along with those around them. Find arimidex cod When Elizabeth and Manning took the dance floor they were married, find arimidex cod but not to each other. And it was that evening, find arimidex cod during that dance, find arimidex cod Elizabeth expressed to Manning what she had felt for decades…. Find arimidex cod   That she had loved him since her days as a round faced teenager sitting at the top of the staircase, find arimidex cod watching him pick up her older sister Harriett for dates at their home in Greenway Parks. Manning, find arimidex cod caught off guard by Elizabeth’s rather forward declaration, find arimidex cod replied to her she simply “can’t say that”.  However, find arimidex cod she had said it.   Elizabeth was known to say what she felt, find arimidex cod versus what may have been considered more socially appropriate.         It was not long after they danced that evening, find arimidex cod Manning reciprocated her affections. Liz at the time was married to another man, find arimidex cod whom she had been married to for over a decade.  During that time, find arimidex cod Liz and Jim had three boys together. The oldest, find arimidex cod a strong willed and determined child, find arimidex cod  was also a fierce protector and incredibly bright. The middle child could make one feel as if no one else in the room existed with his personality, find arimidex cod charm and good looks. Find arimidex cod The youngest of the boys, find arimidex cod somewhat shy, find arimidex cod endearing and incredibly kind to all, find arimidex cod was liked by everyone who knew him. The lives of three young children were in many ways, find arimidex cod irretrievably altered in 1960 when their mother, find arimidex cod my mother, find arimidex cod married a man named Manning Shannon. Find arimidex cod It almost seemed fate and/or sheer determination, find arimidex cod or both brought both Liz and Manning together. I was not a blip on the screen when my father and mother shared a dance together at that Black tie affair. I was born in 1965, find arimidex cod  at least five years after what apparently, find arimidex cod became quite a scandal in Highland Park. The level of reaction created by my mother and father marrying had never been told to me, find arimidex cod until a few years ago.    I also didn’t fully comprehend, find arimidex cod nor will I ever, find arimidex cod the impact it had on my older brothers. Additionally I never knew or understood the consequences it had on mother, find arimidex cod Jim Sr. Find arimidex cod and my father, find arimidex cod which inevitably had on all three and certainly those directly connected to them. I am beginning to realize and understand how it affected all of us, find arimidex cod and our relationships to one another.  At the time of the divorce my mother was abandoned by all of her friends when she divorced Jim in order to marry Manning, find arimidex cod an old friend of hers told me fairly recently. Find arimidex cod   My mother left a life behind to marry Manning. Find arimidex cod Divorces were pretty unique overall in 1960, find arimidex cod and were particularly unique in the little town of Highland Park.  Our mother’s choice to pursue and marry Manning created seismic shifts in the lives of quite a few, find arimidex cod that my mother at the time, find arimidex cod intoxicated by an unfulfilled quest, find arimidex cod had not consciously considered at the time.   Who does when they are in love? However in a world of cause and effect, find arimidex cod it had consequences which reverberate through those of us impacted (and consummated) by their union, find arimidex cod to this day. There is not a day I don’t wish for at least an hour of Liz and Manning’s time, find arimidex cod which I too often overlooked and undervalued when I was younger. If I could have time with my parents, find arimidex cod I would ask them many questions.  I would ask if they could do it over again, find arimidex cod would they share another dance? I would ask them how they would have done things differently, find arimidex cod if they could have done things differently? Life as usual continues today, find arimidex cod unabated and undeterred.   A friend of mine used to say that  ‘we are our choices’. Tonight I wonder from what place(s) do our choices originate? Are they directed and originated by other choices, find arimidex cod  decisions, find arimidex cod and reverberations of days, find arimidex cod  years and lifetimes gone by? Are our choices responses to moments which came long before us, find arimidex cod  before we ever drew our first breath?   Some thoughts and questions I have tonight. Find arimidex cod
