I am not you, and you are not me

“I am not you, and you are not me, and nor should we wish to be. But we can take things from each other.”

Said Kevin last night after we were talking about me finding it hard to leave a place, a holiday, a moment. I am loving all we are seeing on this trip so much. Attachment to things and people and places. And how Kevin can just go between things looking forward. We spent time looking up at the dazzling stars.

We also talked about how other babies Coraline’s age are walking and saying a few words, which we sometimes mention in passing, just because it’s good to mention it. We love her deeply just as she is. “Tortoise and hare,” says Kevin.
