The first few days after I took my ring off, there was still an indentation, not to mention a paler strip of skin where it had been. Both clues to the great symbolic change in how my fingers are adorned have essentially disappeared by now. It doesn't seem like that's enough time for my fingers to adapt. Ten years of wearing those rings. Shouldn't my finger still show evidence of it?
Soon after I took off my wedding and engagement rings I went and bought a new ring at the market. I desperately needed the feeling of a ring on my hand, something to fiddle with.
