April 10, 2008 | Tuning the instrument
While I was riding the subway the other day, I saw a young couple holding each other. His arms were wrapped around her and he was bent half over her, protecting her from the nasty winds swirling over the platform. She had one arm around his waist but was looking across him, protecting him from seeing the utter desolation on her expression.
They were taking the train to the airport and yet they were the most united couple I’ve seen in years. They were also just outside a major military base.
They haunt and inspire me. I’ll use their incredible emotion in a story one day, just to make sure their love reaches a safe harbor.
