We meet here every Tuesday morning at Rosie’s cafe, to sip coffee and converse about what’s happened since last week. It’s ordinary things we talk about, like what our kids have been up to, yard work planned and/or completed, what chapter we’re on in our current books, what episode on our current series.
We’ve filled each Tuesday morning with each other in our calendars for over twenty-five years. You’re married. I’m single again these last five years. You know how I feel. You may feel the same way. Yet neither of us chooses to examine the blushing blossom on the thick sturdy stem too closely. It remains in suspended animation, even as its fragrance perfumes the air.
