Absence & Love


Over the years I’ve heard two very dichotomous quotes examining our experience of an absent loved one. The first: “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.” The second: “Out of sight, out of mind.”

I’m missing Patrick very much right now and it occurred to me that I finally could reconcile these quotes and through missing him as much as I do, I realize I now believe if we don’t really love someone that much, they will be out of mind when they are out of site. And if we really do love someone, the feelings within our heart will grow when we take space.

I’m appreciating the gift of loving someone so much. I feel like the last decade of my life was romantically very difficult and in many ways, tragic. I’m elated to have such a beautiful partner and to have the experience of missing him. 🙂

My love, my love, my love…. 🙂
