the dance

“We talked and laughed and were nervous together, but this is how it starts, is it not? We got to know each other carefully, over good meals on frigid days and long walks home through the snow. The mess of everyday life faded quickly when we were together, one hour here, another there. We stole every moment we could get. And so we have our dates and our history and our love. We take care of those things because they are who we are.” – M.F. Miller ‘Revisiting Our Temples’.
