So if you haven’t heard, Dustin is moving to San Diego. For those who haven’t (or don’t know), we were practically married for two years from Spring of 2002 to Summer of 2004, broke up, but then became friends again (and roommates) when I bought the house in Fall 2005 to the end of 2006. He has since moved in with his boyfriend and they are moving to California together.
It’s hard for me to comprehend the seriousness of this situation (let alone describe it) because we’ve both moved on years ago. Still, when I got the phone call, I immediately thought about making him a cd.
To me, the process (and product) of creating a mix cd is perhaps the single most romantic gesture I can think of—often it’s the best I can do to communicate a myriad of complex feelings to almost anyone.
While the above summary doesn’t exactly do the relationship justice, not at all, really, I think the following playlist sums up where we were and then progresses into current feelings, reminisces, and offers good will for the future.
