Moments with Goldfinch…which will soon be memories of Goldfinch…which will be like dreams. He and I walking hand in hand through autumnal forest, finding ourselves quite alone in an enchanting glade with golden rays of sunlight streaming through the canopy above. How beautiful to share those moments with Goldfinch, how beautiful my memories, how beautiful my dreams!
On Sunday, Goldfinch said he wished I was just down the road so that whenever he wanted he could come over and chat and hold me for a few hours.
At the moment he is a two hour drive away (but because we both tend to use the train or coach to travel, it works out closer to three hours). It is hard to explain the excitement that builds when I am about to see him again. Hearing his Australian tones utter the words “Hey Gorgeous!” and his arms wrapping around me….aaaaah! (I know he should get his eyes tested, but we won’t worry about that right now!)
But then there is the agony of saying goodbye and having to make the journey back to my little abode without him.
Long distance relationships are not easy…I know at least one other blogger who totally understands this, as she explained her situation in a comment she sent last week.
You end up dreaming your life away because you miss each other so much. I guess I am going to have to get used to this…in the near future…two or three hours will seem like nothing. 10,100 miles is a lot further than 110 miles. I have a lot of dreaming ahead of me.
I am sure there is a limit to how much you can tolerate of me publishing posts about my love for my Goldfinch…but remember, he is going soon…and then I will be profoundly sad…and I will surely be writing mournful dirges and odes to my long lost love.
