And what about those… longings which marriage stifles? These longings to hit the open road from time to time, to discover whether you could still live alone inside your own head, whether you could manage to survive in a cabin in the woods without going mad; to discover, in short, whether you were still whole after so many years of being half of something… Five years of marriage had me… itchy for solitude.
