Today, day of days, I re-started a relationship.

Wait, that didn't come out correctly. Not a relationship, as in dating or whatnot. A very real, powerful, relationship with my 'pod person'.

It's still not coming out the right way. Let me try and explain:

There are some people in your life, that you may or may not encounter, who have the ability to change you forever and continue to have an effect on you, no matter where you are or what the circumstances are. She calls them pod people, after Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Like, we're two halves of the same person, and when we get together, it just clicks. It's difficult to explain, but it happens.

So, I found my pod person again today. Not that she was ever lost; we live a few blocks from each other. But tonite, I think that we both sort of realized that we really need each other, but not in a romantic way.

It is very gratifying to know that there is somebody out there who you mean a lot to. It's even more so when they mean a lot to you, too.

I am looking forward to growing old with her; and even though we probably won't be together, I'll still be with her; just as much as she will be with me.
