Last weekend was very special. A little bit magical. Face time. Real live communication filled with the richness of body language and facial expressions, subtle intonations, scents, smiles – that 90% of communication which is non-verbal.

Skin time. Tactile sensation. Enveloping bear hugs and whisper soft kisses. Stubble sharp against my cheek. A heartbeat beneath my fingertips, racing, pounding, then slowing.

We didn't really do anything special. No symphony, no theatre, no organized activities. I resisted the urge to plan outings, and instead let things happen as they would. I think the most important things were what many would consider mundane. Dinner together, a walk along one of the trails above town, going to the grocery store for tea, sitting in the movies together. Nothing terribly exciting, but significant. Daily life. Here's where I live. Here's where I work. This is what I see every day. The building blocks of my life. A little bit of the normal, boring Redhead.

'Tis simple threads which form the rich tapestry of life.
