Day 181 - Companionship
I am reminded from time to time that companionship is not about conversation, or activity, or agreeing on any particular subject or point of view. It is about sharing one’s experience with another; enjoying each other’s company even when no word is spoken, perhaps doing different things, whether next to each other on the couch, or in different rooms within the same house, or across town from each other and knowing you are still connected. The activity doesn’t matter.
Today was such a day. A fun walk along the breakwater. A quick trip to the market. After-dinner cocktails with his dear friend. No specific agenda, just a quiet day shared with someone special. It felt neither rushed nor slow; just the perfect pace to enjoy every moment. It was as close to “perfect” as it could get.
