Interesting evening last night. Lots of observations from someone who knows me very well. My ex, Leora.
Went to visit a friend (Lon) who was here from the USA visiting family of his wife's. Leora wanted to come along to see Lon, and I was glad she did, because I didnâ€™t get on with his wife when I last saw them and felt rather uncomfortable. It was good seeing Lon, and Leora being there definitely made things easier.
But thatâ€™s not why the night was interesting. Petunia phoned while I was in the car. She was going to call earlier, but she left work later than she expected. I was really glad she called but it was difficult conversation as we both were on stretches of road with poor signal and that really stunts a conversation. I also then started getting badly lost and it was difficult trying to concentrate on both things. It was a pity as I really wanted to talk to her. But circumstance being it was made it tough.
Also I think we literally passed each other on the same highway, and then when coming home my route took me through the area she was in. So close yet so far. Frustrating.
Anyway Leora and I talked a lot both in the car there and back and during dinner. It was really great reminiscing with her about old times and us and talking about why we where good and why we werenâ€™t and what we learnt from each other and why we both felt we where better people today for dating.
I also talked a lot about Petunia. At one point when I had dropped her at home and we where sitting on the wall looking at the river at night and Tower Bridge all lit up, she laughed and said "man, you are so love struck".
This really got me thinking. Leora and I dated and where involved in some way or another for a long time. She probably knows me emotionally better than most. She's knows what emotions I have when taken with someone.
More interestingly, was the statement didn't really surprise me at all.
