    Falling in love (part 1)

    If you want to fall in love with someone (or just like them more) –
    Do things for them.
    The kind of things that excite you, stretch you, and scare you just a bit. The kind of things that require at least a little of your attention everyday. The kind of things that you really do because they ma […]

    Directness

    Yesterday morning, I was planning to hang out with a friend. I was in San Francisco, close to where she lives, and we were going to grab a cup of tea or light bite together before I began my drive back home to LA.
    Our last text exchange had left the details of our get-together up in the air – […]

    Girlfriends

     
    This morning, my girlfriend and I were scheduled to go for a sunrise hike. Yesterday, she cancelled on me.
    I felt ‘irritated’ – the nice way of saying angry.
    Now my anger was not ‘rational’.
    She’s extremely busy at work, her grandmother is very sick and she’s starting her o […]

    Changing Directions

    Last night I was at dinner with a friend who is planning to move back to her hometown. She was telling me how she doesn’t really want to live there, but she’s already told her family, so she kinda has to go now as not to disappoint. She must have seen a look on my face, because she stopped mid-s […]

    Loneliness

    Right now I’m feeling lonely. I was scheduled to go out to dinner with a friend tonight that I haven’t seen in a long time. Something I’ve been looking forward to for a while. I had spent time today feeling into what kind of food I wanted to eat and was enjoying going back and forth about logi […]
