Awesome video of a story I heard on NPR this afternoon. (go read the story for background on the video.)
My ideas of romantic relationships has changed over the course of growing up, having a baby and coming to understand the fantastical feelings of love and the obligatory duties of being a partner. I have to say, there isn't really anything I feel I have to do and there isn't really anything that I don't want to do. Aside from the very occasional superficial tiff that I think is rooted in the circumstances of the day and void of any long-term emotional investment, I think we're in a magical balance. The kind of balance that makes you want to squeeze out the excess, bottle it up, and gift it to those in need of a little bliss.
Today, I am thankful for washing machines, espresso, lots of work with a generous vacation at the end, and the superhumans in my life who do super so well.
