a pool of sunshine

"I urge you
to please notice
when you are happy,
and exclaim or murmur
or think at some point,
'If this isn't nice,
I don't know what is'"


Kurt Vonnegut
A Man Without A Country

MrM took me to Bath
for a day out on Sunday.
He went to great lengths
to choose things to do
that he hoped I would enjoy.
As we walked down
Great Pulteney Street
in the autumn sunshine
I thought
"This is what it is like to be loved."

  14. As my husband and I ate lunch in the sunshine today we quizzed each other on the differences between romantic gestures and the gestures that make you feel cared for. Two for two Mr.M.
