"I used to feel so alone in the city. All those gazillions of people and then me, on the outside. Because how do you meet a new person? I was very stunned by this for many years. And then I realized, you just say, ‘Hi.’ They may ignore you. Or you may marry them. And that possibility is worth that one word."
It’s really refreshing having someone in your life who appreciates you and actually wants to spend time with you. Someone who reminds you they will not leave when things get tough. Someone who is not like everyone else. I think everyone needs a person like that.
