Dear Maggie,  
 
I think you are really ready for a decent relationship.  You know I had mixed feelings about your ex.  You didn't tell me everything in the beginning, but once I realized that he always put you down and belittled you, I begged you to leave.  You just weren't ready.  I understand.  But now you are free of him and you are ready for that perfect someone.  Maybe Gary is that person.  I like what you are telling me about him.  But just remember that you haven't been free all that long and just started to date.  Maybe there will be other men who interest you also.  Psychologists always recommend not committing to a new relationship for at least a year after divorcing.  Of course, I'll love you no matter what you do. 
 
I feel in some ways like I am living out Eat, Pray, Love here in Jerusalem.  I'm eating the most amazing food and exploring an unbelievable city at the same time.  And the lovemaking hasn't been bad either.  At least when David is around.  He is awfully busy.  That leaves me on my own to wander.  The old city is the most fascinating part of the city, I think.  Once you walk into the different sections you are in these endless alleyways that have to be hundreds of years old.  They are bazaar areas where goods of every kind are being sold.  I fell in love with the smells, the fabrics, the jewelry, the foods, even the bags of spices.  I can't wait to bring you adventuring with me.  Take a look at my pictures!  I'm so glad you will be here in a few days.  I can't stand to see all of this without you. 
 
Love,
Natalie
