If it’s nice outside where you are, take a walk and put this in your ears. Even if it’s not nice, close your eyes, take a deep breath wherever you are and listen. It’s spring, and new life abounds. 

It’s the first day of spring

And my life is starting over again

20 Strangers Kiss for the first time. 

Thanks to M for sharing on facebook. I don’t know why, but seeing this made me cry. Some of them are so intimate and sweet and the moments before they kiss are so real, even for people who know and like one another. The awkwardness is great. And the poor guy with the glasses didn’t get a willing partner.

You must learn her.

You must know the reason why she is silent. You must trace her weakest spots. You must write to her. You must remind her that you are there. You must know how long it takes for her to give up. You must be there to hold her when she is about to.

You must love her because many have tried and failed. And she wants to know that she is worthy to be loved, that she is worthy to be kept.

And, this is how you keep her.

"As usual, you’re beautiful. One of the reasons I like…you unkempt, unmade, is because - and I hope this doesn’t offend you - that is how you’d appear if we were together: at night, before bed; in the afternoon, after being outdoors and sweating; in the morning, before getting up. In all the best emotionally and physically intimate moments, a woman is unmade and disheveled. In the best of all, she’s sweaty, too: slick and glistening and totally undone."
