"And so they parted, she to the east, and he to the west.
The test they had agreed upon, however, was utterly unnecessary. They should never have undertaken it, because they really and truly were each other’s 100% perfect lovers, and it was a miracle that they had ever met.”
Who can deny the beauty and promise of fate, chance, and miracles?
How tempting, almost, to absolve yourself of responsibility…let the love stand and fight for itself, then let it dissolve if it must, without your knowing. Is that it?
This morning I promised my diary a good entry to make up for the reticence of the past few weeks…Today provided more than enough material. Boardwalks, true facts about plants, haw par villa scares, playground pyramids, flying foxes and obstacle courses, impulsive unauthorized wading in salty waters by far off yachts…and above all, good conversations and silences with good company.
Thank you Charis and Mariel for bringing to us The Walk!
