And when you choose a life partner, you’re choosing a lot of things, including your parenting partner and someone who will deeply influence your children, your eating companion for about 20,000 meals, your travel companion for about 100 vacations, your primary leisure time and retirement friend, your career therapist, and someone whose day you’ll hear about 18,000 times.

Intense shit.

"Embrace the human who makes you release dopamine, serotonin, and oxytocin all in unimaginable amounts. Let the chemicals spread through your brain the way bubbles spread out when a 4 year old blows on the bubble stick—innocently fast. They’ll spread out and make the space look pretty forming tiny rainbows on their circular, elusive surface. When the bubbles can no longer hold themselves together, they pop. However, they are not gone. If you look closely, the bubbles relapse into liquid droplets— into another form. They drop to the bottom and lay there. They intertwine with the fabric of the floor just as these chemical emotions intertwine with the fabric of your most basic mind. The more the bubbles are blown, the more they come to the bottom and rest. Soon enough, the fabric won’t be able to soak it all in. The liquid of emotions will begin to rise. It will fill the space and wash everything. Things—concrete things— will float in this liquid and will erode until they are particles. Your mind will be full. It will be flooded with delicate touches, electric feelings, the rhythmic ups and downs of his breathing, and made-up songs sung to him when he won’t wake up. Embrace the human who makes your mind flood. After all, it is more graceful to move through water than mud."

"We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit."


E.E. Cummings

Happy Birthday!

if I never see you again
I will always carry you

on my fingertips
and at brain edges

and in centers
of what I am of
what remains.

"I want to be with you,
it is as simple,
and as complicated as that.”
- Charles Bukowski
