not there yet

When two people are in the same place —

On the same page —

At the same time —

Well — that’s just pretty.

Pretty cool.  Pretty amazing.  Pretty —


I know.  Trust me.  I’ve been there. 

And believe me, carpe diem-ing — without hesitation, without reservation —is the only — well— sane response two humans can have.

But I’ve also been — yep, you guessed it —


Square-peg-in-round-hole, that is.  Plenty of times. 

And still. 

While “not there yet” is not a good enough reason to wait or put yourself on hold, the idea of remaining open to possibilities is a good one.

And one possibility that really has to be considered —

In fact, more heavily weighted than others when “not there yet” is on the table is —

“Never will be.”


I know.
