First contact accomplished! It's a Sheldon and Amy dynamic, hence the graphic. I was not aware I could still slip into foggy glasses mode; reminds me of being a teenager again, which is a mixed bag, but amusing, anyway. Sometimes a person, simply by their energy, can strip every bit of acquired sophistication off you and leave you wondering if you put your shoes on the correct feet. Quiet people do that to me; I find myself wondering if the silence is okay, or if I need to fill it. It's a good exercise... I should work on the nuances of it.
We enjoyed the afternoon, went for sushi, and even if we were spazzes (he dunked his elbow in the soy sauce, I spilled my miso soup on the table) we still had a good time. We took a walk in the sunshine down by the river before he brought me home. I am breathing into "it is what it is" and being happy that I'm keeping myself open, rather than wallowing in deconstruction and examination. Sometimes we think too much, and don't trust the moment. I want to be here now. It is the best place to be.
