I forget the specifics, but a few days ago Cameron used the word “swirl” to describe love. He may have said something along the lines of, “You make my heart swirl.” (Or something to that effect.) And ever since then I can’t get the word swirl out of my head; whenever I think of him or love or happiness the word swirl pops into my head.
For example, when I see this picture of Cameron I think swirl. Swirl just encapsulates everything. Swirl is love and laughter and connection and caring and history and future and unity between two people and eye gazing and hand holding and everything else love can and is and will be.
Sometimes I wonder about what it means to be together in a relationship for a long time. But I have come to appreciate the history in relationships, all those remember whens and can you believe we used tos and the that reminds me of the time whens. Reminiscing about the past can be great for a laugh, but that can’t be all that keeps you together.
You’ve got to have plans for the future. There’s got to be next year lets’ and maybe someday we cans. And, of course, you’ve got to have that ever important piece of the puzzle: swirl.
