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.
