a few weeks ago i wrote that i wanted life to be simple. and last night i found simplicity. i texted j(wh) late yesterday afternoon and, instead of the stereotypical dinner-and-a-movie, i proposed dinner and a bookstore. so we ate delicious food. and then we wandered through the aisles of borders, browsing through books about everything from politics to birds to hippos-with-glued-on-shoes and relationships. and, when the music on the loudspeakers got a bit bluesy, we danced in the aisle.

and there was my simplicity. two hours in the company of my love. and, when he had to go back to work and i drove home, i took joy and peace with me.

    That sounds fabulously fun. We like to browse the Barnes & Noble clearance section….though we have unfortunately never danced in the aisle. I may try to get Ryan to participate in that next time we visit a bookstore…..

    john sure knew how to win my heart. first he sat in a car in a parking garage for nearly three hours engaged in eclectic conversation on our first date. then he invited me on a second date to a bookstore. :) browsing the bookstore is one of our favorite things to do together. we’re such nerds…

    Oh, the nerd thing is totally sexy. Maybe JWH is in denial, but it’s true. :-)
