Today I found a little green post card that Greg sent to me in the summer, in 2006. (It was the first ever thing he sent me). On the card there is a boy and a girl on a field and a massive wall divides them. The boy passes a flower on a super long stalk to the girl, over the wall. It was obviously a very sophisticated metaphor of me and him, so far from each other 😉
I felt a note of a tired yet deep satisfaction when I placed that card on a shelf in our first ever our home. I could feel the word finally floating in the air. No more walls!!!
