"If you live off a man’s compliments, you’ll die from his criticism."
He might have broken his hand. I can tell he wants to come home by his breathing on the phone. I’m glad we are leaving next weekend to get away from the constant grind. We laugh about facebook stalking and the small nature of this city. I’m curled up in bed with a stomach ache and a book about viral pandemics. The ceiling fan makes a quiet hum in the room and I’m glad my Saturday illness resulted in forced restfulness.

A friend and I had a conversation about styles of love recently, and how people develop affection differently. An email contained this:
"The phrase “If you love someone, set him free” must have been written for a Sagittarian lover. You can’t pin them down, or demand fidelity from a Sag—it just won’t work. They need to feel they have choices and that they can be off at a moment’s notice. It requires patience and time until they see that you are more fun than anyone else, more loving than anyone else, and the one they want to come home to at the end of the day.
Sagittarius is one of the more open signs of the zodiac, so their biggest secret—fear of commitment—is not much of a secret. They dread the moment when the big “C” word will emerge from what they perceive as a tremendously fun love affair, and they will do just about anything to avoid it. In many cases they will like the IDEA of marriage and a family, but the reality is somewhat frightening and will take some getting used to.
Trying to fence in your Sagittarian love with too many rules and boundaries will quickly dampen his ardor. There are very few things sadder than a wild stallion captured and corralled in a paddock, and that is true for your Sag as well. If your love is true she will expect you to accompany her on many adventures, and that will help cement your bond and enhance your shared joy.
Sagittarians are famous for their blunt speech and tendency towards thoughtlessness. When communicating with Sagittarians, it’s important to remember that they don’t mean to be insulting, it’s just their way. Don’t expect them to sort through your subtle hints or read between the lines; they see the long range view and usually have no interest in mysteries. Speak up and be direct, and you’ll find communication with your Sagittarian a snap!”
Bike party, sweaty hugs, cold beer, and he texts every 15 minutes to make sure I am okay and still somewhere nearby. A security blanket. I am his person and he is mine.

"If you’re feeling small today I dare you to sit up straighter, look someone who scares you directly in the eye, take up room at the dinner table, make yourself bigger, when ‘sorry’ laps at the back of your tongue, tries to pick up after you, remind yourself that your existence doesn’t demand an apology, that you are allowed to make mess and take up space, do not be afraid to expand. Every single goddamn minute. Expand, expand, expand"
