One of My Favourite Things

One of my favourite things about in person conversation…..watching someone become more and more comfortable making eye contact with you. You’re watching a soul unfold, like a flower.

  1. Isn’t it interesting though how we now HAVE to rely on seeing our ‘talk partner’s’ eyes as we no longer can perceive their reactions by looking at their mouth, lips, their face in general!
    Eyes are the mirror of the soul; it’s good to be reminded of this, from time to time.

  8. I have a response to that too. Wanna hear it?
    No…………..I don’t need your smarty pants retorts. Just breathe, okay?
    I am…and it feeds a bit of the fire, that’s all.
    Good…burn inside, jut NMBY.
    No, I have blossoms too….. are we mixed yet?
    who’s who
    who’s on first? who’s got beautiful buds? A lot of us?

  10. Yours is one of the only blogs that I read all the comments. You have created quite the beautiful community, you know that? Of course you know that. You’re pretty smart…

    And yes, to this post. That is something wonderful when you have earned the trust from the other person and can visibly see them relax and give you part of their soul (as Sawsan so brilliantly put it).

  11. New friendships are exciting. Like new love. Only you don’t have to get divorced from your current spouse, so less complicated, lol.
