My driving narrative continues. By now it's evident that driving is an emotional chore for me. I do it as little as I can get away with. And, as with most people, music accompanies me on every trip so as I drive I listen. The lyrics I hear become the story of my life with my Beloved.
The song today was To Sir With Love and the particular lyrics were: "How do you thank someone who has taken you from crayons to perfume". As I mouthed the words the rest of the song faded as that particular line became a metaphor for our early relationship. And as my mind started to race back to that period of time, I experienced a slight fluttering sensation throughout my body. I felt as though I was being surrounded by Warren's arms and it seemed very real to me. I even asked, out loud, if he was with me and in my mind's eye I could "see" him smiling at me.
I choose to believe that what I experienced was another indication that my Beloved Warren is truly with me all the time and makes his presence known when I really need him. My drive today didn't result in the usual tears. I smiled!
