Special

Monday, March 22, 2010

Something becomes special when it hardly ever happens, and when it does happen it takes you by surprise – like a night spent with colleagues over a sumptuous seafood banquet, unearthing a good read from a mountain of trashy ones, or a two-week vacation with a loved one whose absence is felt for the rest of the year. When you hardly go out and spend time with people, when you lead an uneventful, solitary life devoid of the accoutrements that make it a charmed one, the simplest of things becomes truly special.

I agree... like a dinner at the City tonight with husband and the family, who is currently sharing their home with us. :)
