Who's your Hubbell?

Not everyone has a Hubbell. And if you are reading this and don't know what a Hubbell is...... then  perhaps you should go and have a cup of tea, or do the washing up or carry on with the important thing you were doing or should be doing....perhaps come back later....or not....up to you. But if you have had a Hubbell in your life then I would like you to sit back and just take a few moments with me. I had a Hubbell moment today.  Remember how it felt? Being young and in love. Being together yet never feeling that Hubbell was the one you would live out your days with. With Hubbell there is passion and happiness aplenty but the nagging feeling that your life was waiting for you to start it somewhere else...with someone else.......so although you share laughter and music and sex and places and people and events and memories...... life intervenes. There is a seperation. And a moving on, each into other lives.....other lovers, relationships, marriages. Towards the person you love. Who loves you. Which is good. Your life is what it should be..no more no less.
Now and again though you hear a song or see a film and it takes you back......and you think....if you were ever to see your Hubbell again, how would that be? I think the best bit would be just.....not meeting ,no never that.. not speaking, words would not be needed......but the deliciousness of just seeing an older familiar face across a room and sharing a look....a memory of young love....then moving on.

Hubbell needs to stay exactly where you left him....in the past!Trust me, you should never look back and I say this to you from experience but I`m not going to tell you about it because it was a very,very bad nightmare from which it took a long time to recover. Friends Reunited have an awful lot to answer for!
p.s. I have a pic of the only true Hubbell on my sidebar in case anyone`s wondering what on earth we`re talking about!

He's out there, still mired in the frantic life that he chose over "us". I suppose I have to be glad, since I am so very happy and in love with my husband, but the pain of his choice still haunts me in my dreams. I have many of them where we see each other across crowded train stations, or from windows of passing cars, and the only thing I remember more strongly than the love is the pain.

Ah Marcheline..as you so rightly said, if you hadn't had that heartbreak you wouldn't be with your partner now.....life and love are bittersweet.

I have a Hubbell. I am his Hubbell. Safer to stay out orbit, for fear of the pull of gravity (mixing metaphors, but you get the drift).

libby said...

Well said Madame....it didn't really occur to me that I could be his Hubbell too....and the fear of the pull of gravity? delicious thought..dreams for a rainy day thats all...
