...quiet, about a lot of things...

Some strangers come and go, and some stay rooted in our lives. Sometimes we can almost see the all of them. Sometimes we almost obtain our peak. Break through. Almost make it to the top.
But two souls can never live in the same body. So we must remain just a bit apart, depending on kindness.
For such a tried and true romantic, I really do believe we travel this road alone.Thank God, we meet some beautiful strangers along the way.
I met one of these beautiful men on the freeway in LA....and married him years later. Sounds unlikely. Sounds more than mighty strange.
Shortly after, he introduced me to this other strange man..who lived with us..as newlyweds, for a couple of years. Looking back, it could have been a recipe for disaster..or at least a really good sit-com.
But instead, it was a close as I will ever get to actually having a brother.
It was a strange blessing."We" were truly happy.
We ended up out growing the home we'd all made..and each moving in our own directions again..My "brother" eventually finding his wife and making his family.
We aren't as close as we once were. The addition of a new stranger, disrupted the balance. Made things feel strange.
We saw each other again, just last week, the three of us, perfect strangers. Still Perfect. Still a strange blessing. Thank God.
