Without saying too much to cloud this already rainy day, this quote by Lori Carson on her journal does it for me:
“I know as soon as I leave, I will ache for it. That doesn’t mean I want to stay though. You can’t stagnate just to guard against longing.” – Lori Carson
I had the privilege of knowing someone who’s met Lori. And I think “smitten” is the best word to describe how she left him that day.
