Ben can be so prickly sometimes. He still avoids saying proper names. Except for Lucy. He says her name, he loves on her. Sometimes rough, but always apologetic when he realized he’s hurt yer. I just love watching him with her, seeing his tenderness, looking at her light up. Oh what joy!
The imagery is excellent. So much to think about in just a few lines. Thank you for sharing.
As an aside, my oldest daughter leaves a week from tomorrow to go to the University of Dallas. She want to double major in philosophy and English. It sounds like it will be a good fit for her.
Jessica, Good luck to her. I had a friend who did the philosophy-English double major. It’s a challenge for sure. I hope she enjoys her time at UD as much as I did mine.
