you see, my soulmate lives there.
not the romantic kind of soulmate- i married that one.
but the kind of soulmate you have, no matter what.
the kind that has a bond which distance and life circumstance can't weaken or diminish.
the kind that's born from a situation in which you never thought you would find such pure, unadulterated love.
the kind that gives you haven when the person you think is your romantic soulmate turns out to not be that at all. (no fears, i am happily married. but other people are still looking, and that's okay, too.)
we call it safelove.
best friends don't break up.
so, i went to visit her.
here is how things went.
we had a picnic.
i helped decorate.
i made signs for the dips.
i made new friends.
i talked a lot. of course.
but i also listened a little.
we had a dance party.
we made crafts.
and i relaxed with my soulmate.
it was a wonderful weekend.
