Splash du Jour: Tuesday

There is something about talking in the night, with the shreds of sleep around your ears, with the silences between one remark and another, the town dark and dreaming beyond your own walls. It draws the truth out of you, straight from its little dark pool down there, where usually you guard it so careful, and wave your hands over it and hum and haw to protect people's feelings, to protect your own… You can bring out the jaggedest feelings - if you are my wife and know how to state them calm - into the night quiet. They will float there for consideration, harming no one.

Have a great Tuesday!

Any couple who experiences these magic bubbling into the night has found the special bond bestowed only on those who truly love each other.

Thank you for these beautiful quote, Cipriano.
It means the world to me.
