Lisa aka Truly,
Your question about my newfound exuberance this morning provoked a good deal of introspection during the return flight home. After a soul-searching session at 4,500 feet, I could not escape the conclusion that it was all attributable to Ms Truly! Try as I might to seek other sources of the giddy days I have been experiencing, it all keeps coming back to you. Sorry, but that is the only answer I have. Hope that doesn’t trouble you.
Once again, every time I leave you, the exuberance vanishes and I find myself resisting the mundane events of my world and the only thing I am focused on is finding out when I can see you again. This coming weekend is Memorial Day and in addition to Assad’s big party, there are numerous other functions. Plus, I am sure you have a busy schedule with other obligations as well. I have learned after much angst to accept things which I cannot change. Even so, I find myself wishing for more time with you. Don’t mean to creep you out, just trying to answer your question.
On a much brighter note, this visit was particularly special. Your consideration of my need to spend as much time as possible with you was something only the elite can do. The trust you have placed in me is a source of great pride and I hope to earn all of it. I know it took a great leap of faith to do what you did by sharing your real life with me and I never wish for you to regret the decision to share and to place your interests in the arms of my small talents. Thank you.
Will this email ever end? One more thing, as always you have taught me more with each discussion about our project. The painful pokes you give me only cause room for me to learn and grow. This task will not be easy and when I was asked about a possible effort in this regard prior to our introduction, I declined without hesitation. You and the parts of you that have been shared with me are my inspiration. We shall overcome.
One final note. I was thinking about what someone told you about challenging my ego and how that same person was put off when I once told her that it was my opinion that she would like for me to move on. The dichotomy is self-explanatory. End of topic.
Now, get your stuff together, lets get busy on the car & housing issues (Tell Tom to send listing) and enjoy whatever life brings to two wayfarers in search of better ways and days.
You are the Sunshine in my pocket,
