Chicago - February 1974 - Age 27
Preface: This was a most difficult writing to admit to myself ... truth ... that the woman I loved so very deeply was at times intimate with other men while seeing me. It hurt a lot but I knew I had to accept this difficult fact if I wanted to be with her ... and I did. It was who she was and deeply ingrained as part of her nature. I think it was the first time the word "acceptance" had a meaning for me.
