My all-time favorite declaration of love is Billy Crystal to Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally, the one that begins, “I love the way it takes you forty-five minutes to order a sandwich.” You have recaptured that spirit here, reminding us of what mature love is. Too many people think it’s all about “how you make me feel” instead of “who you are.”
Kudos to you, and congratulations to you and your (mutual) muse for finding one another and creating such a wondrous space for sharing.
I’ve been a fan of yours since reading Bad Feminist last year in a CNF workshop in my MFA program. Delighted to discover you here; you can bet I will be following.
