“His better qualities”


We sat in the car at Ocean Beach, looking at the Pacific after a walk around the Cliff House. After weeks of wooing me, and me trying to ignore his better qualities (determination and steadfastness), he put on Nick Drake’s “Northern Sky”, and that was it. I couldn’t be tough or indifferent any longer, and I gave in.


Postscript: Still together a year and a half later, living together and planning our future.
