Adventures in Divorce

I always wondered why people who murdered their spouses didn't just get a divorce.... I now understand why

No, I'm not a prophetess. Cassandra, according to Greek mythology, spurned the advances of the Greek god Apollo and her gift of prophecy was cursed so that her predictions would never be believed. Such is my life. I tend not to think like most people, which is a gift... but also a curse. So step into my mind, take off your shoes and stay for awhile... you're always welcome, loved ones.

Harry Potter on unattainable love

"Meanwhile, the second brother journeyed to his own home, where he lived alone. Here he took out the stone that had the power to recall the dead, and turned it thrice in his hand. To his amazement and his delight, the figure of the girl he had once hoped to marry, before her untimely death, apeared at once before him. Yet she was sad and cold, separated from him as by a veil. Though she had returned to the mortal world, she did not truly belong there and suffered. Finally the second brother, driven mad with hopeless longing, killed himself as to truly join her. And so, Death took the second brother for his own."

~Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Chapter 21 (The Tale of the Three Brothers)

It is best to leave unattainable love alone.... while you may see it, smell it, taste it, feel it, and hear it, you can never truly possess it. And, as in The Tale of the Three Brothers from the final Harry Potter book, it can and will drive you insane with longing. *Le sigh......*
