I met someone very nice, and we enjoy each other's company. See? No drama.
Some people whom I love and admire told me not to say anything, just because ... who knows what will happen? I took this advice to heart and sat with it a while. My friends don't want me to feel vulnerable. It makes sense, it just doesn't make sense for me.
I show you my campsites, but I'm not moving in. I don't withhold sunsets just because they slide into starry nights. Things and people and situations are beautiful in the here and now, and there's nothing else anyway. Vulnerability is part of the prize package under your seat.
