Faraway Sweetie and I just had another phone conversation / date. We talked about how nice it will be to soon be able to be in physical proximity, to share activities like cooking, eating, drawing, meditating.... I said what I always do, "Anything with you". I'd like to do most anything with her. It is the with her part ... I'd even go shoe shopping for her shoes with her, I would. And I'd enjoy it, because I'd be with her.

There was lots of warmth and laughter.

I'm researching trains and buses and fares. (I prefer ground travel.)

I've edited out the R rated part.

Gosh, remember when the day you would be able to see her seemed so far away?

Uhhuh. And I also remember thinking of waiting for spring (due to the recent divorce and The Slippery Slope Theory...).

Well, it does have a steep incline. I've seen it. And it is slick. But I've bought some special anti-slick shoes! And I have some special, iron underwear equipped with padlocks. Fashionable!

Question is, which one of us keeps or hides the keys?

I get it, River. That's it EXACTLY for me. My long distance ex used to ask me what I wanted to do when I went to visit him. And I would answer "be with you." He wanted to plan elaborate outings and I just wanted to be together.

I love the sense of anticipation and desire you have.

could it be that he was asking you:
"what do you like doing?"

In the beginning, maybe. But we were together 12 years...by year, say, 3, you'd think he would have gotten a clue.

Another phone date moments ago. What joy it is to talk with her! We're so at ease and happy with one another. It's magical! We never run out of things to talk about. Comfort and warmth and ease...(!). And happy, light joy.

We have plans to go see the Grand Canyon together in spring, she, Kevin, me and some of our friends. Stopping at Chaco Canyon on the way to camp near some famous anasazi ruins. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaco_C...istorical_Park

I figger it's okay for she and I to share our own little tent, since Kevin sees so much of me most of the time, and I so little of her. Or we can flip flop the sleeping arrangements on differing nights.

We'll be able to lay under the stars together! Yay!

Initial visit coming soon in her neck of the woods. I'm amazed how relaxed this is and is becoming. Shouldn't I be nervous? Amazingly, I'm not.

I'm amazed how comfortable I've become with FS. Earlier on I had some anxiety about this and that in relation to her, and it seems mostly to have fallen away, revealing great comfort and ease, warm affectionate tenderness, slow gentle joy.

We've spent hours and hours on the phone together lately, and each time it is as if time disappears. Two hours can feel like twenty minutes. And how is it possible for us not to run out of fun things to talk about?

I'm 99.9 % convinced that we'll be just as good together up close, only a lot better 'cause we can then touch one another and share all kinds of up-close experiences. It's remarkable how at ease I am about this massive, amazing event in my life! She's amazing. We're amazing. Life is amazing.

Well, you've only known her a few months. I'd hope you'd still have plenty to talk about. Heck, even my ex and I, after 33 years together, never ran out of interesting things to talk about. And of course, miss pixi and I live in each others' back pockets, going on 3 years now, and she still continually delights, entertains, surprises and inspires me.

"Only boring people are bored," as the saying goes.
