Onward and upward

The combination of listening to the soothing sounds of BT and receiving a message from Emma containing a very simple, "I love you Stephen" makes me very happy and I feel fulfilled and content just reading it.

Did you know that Emma and I very rarely french kiss; this is because when we do, it's a sign that one or both of us is very excited and happy. We do the same with calling each other by our names. You might notice, that when you get in a relationship, you start calling your significant other "baby" or whatever pet name you might have for them. After a while it actually becomes uncomfortable to say their name - so when we do say each others names, we know we really mean it. (or as they said in the movie Love and Sex ... after a while its like saying "cheese sandwich" ... cheese sandwiches take on a whole new meaning now =)

Trying not to say "I love you" all the time as a personal gesture that when you do say it, you really mean it, is useless to me. There are plenty of times when I really do mean it, so I just say it. Its reassuring to hear, and no that doesn't mean I'm insecure about it. You know when you say it and you don't mean it. All last year I was doing that. Now, when I say it, every time, I get a little thrill. Because its true.

Ahh, love. It is so beautiful in the way it is so undefinable. Words can't describe it. Pictures can't convey it, not even moving ones.

Couldnt have described it better myself..... The highs and lows and just sharing your life with someone who cares about even the little mundane things *sighs* :).

words can't encompass it
Words and pictures may not be able to accurately describe or convey the right meaning, but they can remind you about it, and I think that's good enough, really. If it was simple to decribe and recreate, we wouldn't chase after it so much, but it's cool every now and then to be able to read or see or smell something, and be reminded about it.

I think I need sleep. ;)
