So, we are eagerly awaiting a visit from Aamrie. Then we get some awesome news.  She’s going to be passing through town, on her way to visit a dear friend, and will drop in for an overnight stay, on her way.

We get to see her a week early, and even though it’s only an overnight stop, we are overjoyed.

Don’t let anyone fool you. Long-distance relationships truly suck at times. The separation, the limited time together, combine to make the time apart nearly unbearable but makes the time together all the more precious.

All the little things that most relationships take for granted. Cuddling, a stolen kiss, just sitting, talking, while the rest of he world rushes by.

We can’t wait until she gets to visit.



“A real relationship doesn’t properly begin until the NRE burns away. That’s when you have to start dealing with this person as an all-around human being, replete with irritating little habits. When disillusion sets in, love can begin.”

a poem by Shel Silverstein

Sweet Marie, she loves just me

(She also loves Maurice McGhee).
No she don’t, she loves just me
(She also loves Louise Dupree).
No she don’t, she loves just me
(She also loves the willow tree).
No she don’t, she loves just me!
(Poor, poor fool, why can’t you see
She can love others and still love thee.)

“I view polyamorists the same way I view skydivers — with a certain level of awe because they have achieved something I wouldn’t dare to even imagine for myself.”
