“Good communication is as stimulating as black coffee and just as hard to sleep after.”
~ Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Gift from the Sea
I’ll keep this short, because I am seriously just about to go to bed at a little after 6am.
I’ve had one of those nights with my beloved. One where we both woke long before midnight after hardly having been to sleep, both got up to stoke the fire because the house had grown cold, started talking, and then settled down in front of those crackling flames and kept talking all night.
No alcohol. Nothing to fuel the conversation but the need to talk and explore ideas and emotions and choices and all the big life stuff you usually only talk about after too much red wine.
I so love that after this many years of marriage we can and do talk about everything under the sun. May we grow old together, still having fascinating conversations at the oddest of hours.
Bye for now. Soft bed and pillow are calling my name…
