This last trip to the Republica Dominicana was surprisingly delightful.
He traveled from afar. I wasn’t sure if he was going to make it, but He came through for me just like he said he would. I always doubt him, but for someone with so little, he makes it happen.
I was in town for two days, patiently anticipating his arrival. The day came for us to meet and he arrived within 20 minutes after I did. I don’t know how he did it, but he made it happen.
He took me to places I really didn’t want to go, but I always feel somewhat safe with him. He was engaged and intrigued and he was able to accomplish some necessary things. He was patient, and kind, considerate to what I wanted and attentive to more of what I needed from him. It was if he had something to prove. Maybe because it was my birthday.
It’s the little things I cherish like quality time, sitting on the sofa watching tv, rubbing his feet, cooking, a walk on the beach, drinking cerveza, sharing authentic Dominican eats like his favorite fried chicken & plaintains, Chinola passion fruit or fresh pescado squeezed with lime juice. Watching him run on the beach and practicing his pitch for baseball.
There’s still more I want to do with him like go to a movie, visit more beaches, and create more quiet memorable moments.
Just him & I, simplying our love one day at a time. He makes it happen.
