“A chance meeting, an unlikely beginning.
A smile, a laugh, a tease, erotic moments.
Yet the experience is different; a connection, there is harmony.
She reads and quotes Lord Byron; he is inspired.
First she shrugs him off demonstrating her commitment to goals and determined focus; he is captivated.
Laughter, passion, intelligence, compassion, exploration, a sixth sense. Not a coincidence.
Half way around the world, the connection was made.
The river of life exposed, and they choose to navigate together.
Riding together, where, for how long; all of this is unknowable and unnecessary to know.
The beauty is the river before them, the mystery around the next bend is the intrigue and reward.”
