Daisy is definitely a keeper.
That is sweet.
Daisy is the best!
In Japanese, “love” – 恋 (koi) – used to be written with the characters for “lonely sadness”, or 孤悲. However, the meaning was actually translated as “longing for someone in solitude”.
“The Garden of Words” – both film and graphic novel – depicts this perfectly. (In some sense, so does “A Silent Voice”)
Companionship is a persistent essentiality, it seems…
…but even people who prefer to be alone feel such needs. (I’m not sure how voluntarily they feel or act on such needs, however.)
As a loner myself, I feel the ache persistently, but I also know that socializing is difficult – confusing, traumatic, even – for a person with my level of knowledge, who suffers with hesitation over the casual everyday contact that everyone else goes through so effortlessly.
This is one of the reasons motorcyclists ride, often using their mounts as inanimate pets.
I’m a loner together with you and you’re a loner together with me. Since I’m a loner and you’re a loner, together we should be even more a loner.
I’m a loner. Does that mean he’s a tool?
This is my husband and me. We’re both loners who enjoy each other’s company, but also give one another lots of space when one or the other needs it. It has worked very well for us.
I don’t know who originally had the idea that in a great relationship you be together doing nothing and be content – but it has been true for me. Sometimes I just need the down time. Real down time to let my brain, body and soul rest. Having a wife who understands that and will tuck in with me with a good book or something is as lucky as I think I will ever get.
Time for new glasses. I just noticed Candy is a biker too. No wonder they lean into each other.
I love this one!!
