dinner at the usual spot <3

No where else in the world

I’d rather be.

“lets do coffee or dinner sometime …” … yeah … ok

I’ve written about this before:

I Miss Going Out For Coffee at a Cafe.

Of all the things (besides the obvious – visiting my grand babies regularly!), this is the one thing I feel pts(d) has taken that I may never get back. I miss everything about it. The coffee, of course – the smell; the sounds; the idle chatter; the ‘feeling’ … I miss this more than going out for dinner.

And when someone says: “lets catch up … have coffee … go out for dinner …”, can you imagine what goes through my skull? It’s not joy at that prospect thats for sure! It’s usually sadness; a touch of whimsical remininance followed by a sharp pang of guilt then dread … followed closely by a lie … “Sure, sounds great …” … or the truth (depending on whose doing the asking) … “No thats not going to happen anytime soon, but your welcome to do an alternative with Me … Interested?” … which is usually followed by them saying … “Ahhhh … I’ll look at my schedule and get back to You …”

Oh well … It weeds out the flakes thats for sure …

But, the partner misses going out for dinner. The man can eat a small countries worth of food in one sitting! I shit you not!

So the other night he says:

“You want to do dinner at our favourite place?”

Feeling slightly perplexed and wondering what the fuck he’s on, I give him that ‘look’ … and he says : “Our beach. We can have our steak dinner down there.”

Awww … He’s been listening … Finally.

So we did … and while he tried to do ‘wave riding’ I parked up in the boot of the car and wrote and when he’d finished flailing about in the ocean lol … we cooked our steak dinner on our little gas burner and then sat in the sand and enjoyed this view:

Now that’s how ‘dining out’ should be done … and that view! Can’t get that through the window of a restaurant!

And this is what ‘reframing’ pts(d), for Me, is all about. Not just finding ‘alternatives’, but finding something better that becomes the new ‘Norm’.

mauri of me #46 ~ dark, rainy days

my favourite days

are dark.

not the morose

dark:

although i do find comfort

in those –

but the cloud

and rain, darkness.

for me, everything about

the dark:

brings calm.

to my mind; to my body.

i find beauty and peace

in it.

i find cleansing,

and refreshing.

there are no ups and downs.

no high highs, or low lows.

it’s just quiet.

just plain.

just grey.

just dark.

it’s like neutrality,

but beautiful.

but an understated, natural

beauty.
