Even numbers make me happy.
Because you need balance in life.
To this end, I have four lucky numbers - two even numbers and two odd numbers.
12, 6, 3, 25
Zee FINALLY got her Valentine's Package. She called and woke me up this morning, so that I could watch her open it on Skype. :) Almost felt like Christmas.
In her gift, the Pièce de résistance was the calendar I ordered off of Vistaprint. It was beaaauuuuuuuuuuutiful! I kinda hate myself for not taking photos of it while it was in my possession.
I titled the calendar "I am the Sun, and the Moon is my Betrothed," which is a quote that Zee, understandably, didn't recognize.
She said, "I really like this title. Where did you get it?"
So I grabbed my journal off my bedside table, and read to her what I wrote just a couple months before I moved to Nashville.
I shared it with her when we first started dating, and, at that time, it occurred to me that the prose I had written before I'd ever met her was perfect for the two of us.
I am like the sun - brazen, fiery, openly passionate.
She is like the moon - subtle, constant, silently seductive.
It helps that I prefer the summer, the sun, the heat. And she has an affinity for the night and dark that's interestingly impressive.
As I lay in my bed, her face a million miles away now sitting so closely with me on my computer, I read this prose-y essay to her. I realized, at that time, the poem-thing also perfectly describes our separation - this year where, when I'm in the day, she's in the night.
