Did you read Romeo and Juliet in high school? We did, as well as Hamlet. Romeo and Juliet is probably the easiest of the Shakespeare books to read. The classic romantic tragedy that guides many of today’s books. Always good to catch up on your Shakespeare!
Buy this book at your local bookstore or at:
Traffic stopped on the main road by my house today.
It stopped for romance and love.
It stopped for a male and female duck walking across the street. And they were so cute to watch. The female duck was out in the front and the male duck was lagging behind causing a line up of cars. And I swear I could hear what she was saying to him, as you can imagine.
As I drove away after watching them safely get to the side of the road, I started to laugh as I felt like I was watching my husband and I as we age.
You know, when you start off your relationship you walked hand in hand, never saying a negative word to each other. Never bossy of course!
Then as time, comfort levels and the ease in which we start to take each other for granted, the walking starts to have more of an agenda of getting to the destination. Hand holding is less frequent. And yes, someone is maybe a bit bossier.
I watched these ducks and saw me walking across the sidewalk as a senior, looking back at my slow husband (he is older than me so I might actually be faster than him at that point because my super fit husband is faster than me all the time at this point). I could hear the nagging coming from my mouth as I watched the female duck.
But then as they waddled away beside each other, they looked so happy. Mates for life. Beautiful in their simplicity. As are we.
