The Power of Longevity


When he asked me to go camping, I looked at him as if he were a stranger. We’d been together for more years than I could count. For more years than I wanted to count. Camping? I love nature, but when it comes right down to it, I love nature on day trips. At night, I’m a room service kind of gal.

He wanted us to have a new experience. There was a campfire. That helped. When I left the tent, there was a coyote’s eyes looking at me from the edge of the darkness. I felt safe with him.

  1. It looks like the new experience he had in mind works out well. Sometimes, after many years, people need a little reminder of what they see in each other.

  2. They may be opposites as far as camping is concerned , but that they are there for each other at the end of the day , comforted in each other, is perhaps, what makes all the difference.
