I have decided to leave well enough alone where E is concernd. I decided that there is no real point in contacting him, and that nothing good can come of it, just as nothing good came of me checking in on him. That I should learn to leave the past in the past and focus on the present, which does not include him. Should I happen to run into him (and not because I am stalking his regular hang outs)I would react accordingly, but there is no reason to try to be in contact.
and, Good for me
