Yesterday, I woke up in someone’s arms, to a purring cat, and sun streaming through a window. We drove out of town for lunch, and just kept driving, down the Fundy coast, to Cape Enrage, through the countryside.
He showed me geocaches, places where they once built mighty ships. He held my hand, kept a soft grip on my leg while we drove. We watched the tide roll in on a beach, the water swirling cold around our feet as the wind whipped my hair like a dervish. I grinned for it all.
He told me to wait for the Ha Ha Cemetery, and stopped for me, while I, forgetting of my camera, used my phone to take dubious pictures. I stared around me, nearly 9 years in this place, and I had never seen so many of it’s wonders, until a man I’ve only known for a few weeks said “It’s a capital day-let’s go for a drive” and smiled at my joy in the sunlight.
Maybe it won’t last. Maybe the silly grins will fall off, the surprise that we found each other, and equally enjoy each other will fade. But maybe it won’t. And even if it does, I’ll have the sun glancing off my hair and eyes on a vivid Sunday afternoon in my mind forever.
