Ahab's Wife - WIP

This poor woman has been to the salon three times and I think this final hair-do is going to be the one !!!!!!

She keeps looking at me and asking, "does your heart break?", "have you ever yearned for your man to return?", "have you ever worried about the safety of your loved one?"......I can only imagine how life must be for those women in the world who have a loved one far away.

What about you? Do you have a story to tell?

When I was young, I was the man who was far away from my family, roaming Europe for three years and engaged in exciting adventures. It hadn't occurred to me that my family would feel the pain of my loss.

But when my daughters left home for College, I suddenly realized what it must have been like for my parents when I was virtually out of touch for so long.
