When Love Calls

"Love looks not with the eyes but with the mind". William Shakespeare in A Midsummer Night's Dream (I, i, 234)

My mind is fully engaged in looking at my love and thinking about when we will be together again. It’s been nearly three months since our last visit and we have another couple of months to go. The last several days we’ve been touchy, rumor has it that I’ve been snappish (or short). The tension is relatively painless and has been short lived. Still it crackles. Though we talk (have talked) every single day—some days for HOURS, the loneliness that befalls each of us at times is intense to the point of being fierce.

These past few weeks have been hard and the next few will be harder still--what carries me through is the knowledge and the comfort that follows knowing she is there, always. Neta tolerates my moods, endures my workplace frustrations, understands and exhibits extreme patience towards my family obligations. She is in short, a gem.

She calls me the best girlfriend in the whole world, well, note that I give as good as I get.

My mind is occupied with thinking about the sight of her standing in front of me, the feel of her in my arms and the sensation of her lips upon mine. December will bring a feast for all our senses.

Thanks for everything baby. This is for you. (that's for the public Deb---SMILE)


  1. That's what I'm talkin' about.

  2. Thank you baby. I do miss you, but you are worth the wait, and I will wait for as long as it takes. Thank you for being there for me, you always are. I love you with all my heart and soul. December may be a few months away...but at least we will have that.

  3. Deb and Neta sittin in a tree.....

  5. I love well written basking in the glow of love that is.

  6. What a wonderful read. Hurry December!

  7. Dang, can't Neta move a little closer to ORD???
    Nice picture.

  8. I love the picture.

    December will be here soon, but not soon enough. But when it arrives it will be a wonderful time!



  9. Sweet.

    Long-distance relationships have a way of highlighting all the traits we adore in our beloved.

  10. LD relationships are challenging, but, I still believe (after having been through a bad one) that if it's meant to be, it will be...and will stay strong.

    Want me to make you a chain like we made for the kids to count the days until Christmas?


  11. Long distance relationships are hard aren't they?

    Hang in there
