One tree, not two!
I have to leave a day early and spend a day in the city, I used to live there so I know all the ins and outs and have a great time all on my own, I find my own company really good (lol).
I spent time alone in San Francisco when I was coming home from visiting Jonathan, I was pretty sad about leaving but decided to make the most of my time stuck there and go check this city out. It was fantastic, if you like shopping then this is your place, the train took me right to a shopping mall!
Anyway here is a soppy quote from a movie that I like, it sounds old fashioned and warm, and we could use more "warm" these days. I like the movie it came from too, so here you go:
Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides.
And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part.
Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion.
That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are.
Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.

I hope that I have not made you sick! :b
But I like this, the movie is good too if you haven't seen it.
