In a crazy work week, it's easy to lose track of each other a bit. And let's face it - even partaking in special events together doesn't lend itself to sharing about the sorts of things that are sometimes important to address in a relationship. That's why sometimes, it's best just to have nothing at all planned; for me, that's when the best conversations can occur. This weekend, Little Spoon and I were lounging around and finally got to talk out a bunch of our stresses (or at least, I got to unload a bunch of mine), mostly because we were able simply to listen to each other without having to worry about being somewhere at a specific time or do something important.
Sometimes, it's the unplanned, free-flowing conversations that are the most satisfying. You just have to leave some dead time for them to occur...spontaneously.
