“Say all you want about the grand and glorious aspects of a heady romance – lengthy and poetic recitations of love, Sturm und Drang, kissing in the windswept rain – what he liked best are the small and undramatic moments that make for a kind of easy comfort, for a feeling of being grounded in a relationship.

A feeling of being off duty.

You show up on your first date with your best shoes on, hoping to get to a place where you keep your shoes off.”

-e. berg, Once Upon a Time, There Was You
