I Miss Craig

Craig and I have never been apart this long before in our eighteen years . . . we met on the September 28th weekend in 1992 and that is the first time I felt an "exquisite sense of surrender".

"This pause in time, within time . . . When did I first experience the exquisite sense of surrender that is possible only with another person? The peace of mind one experiences on one's own, one's certainty of self in the serenity of solitude, are nothing in comparison to the release and openness and fluency one shares with another, in close companionship . . . When did I first feel so blissfully relaxed in the presence of a man?"
