cat sitting on the floor two rooms away? suddenly the beastmaster makes sense. (not really.)
i took part in some good stories too. the thunderstorm / pizza box crushing bus day, eating gelato while walking home in negative-cold weather, the best first date, lubins..did you just say lubins?, crazy moving days, walking through deafening snow in east pa, aluminum letters, i'm stopping. for my sake.
i will either eventually forget these like anything else (which is depressing to think of them like that, like anything else), or i will forget them on purpose (if that is possible). the other people involved will do the same. and then it is almost as if they never happened. that is probably a good and a bad reason to keep an actual daily journal.
it was na�ve of me to think at the time that any particular relationship would last to the point of always having those stories embodied in a partner. but..
words are vitamins, and life is short..
