"I love you so dearly, which is good, given our relationship."

Sometimes I am reminded that being married to a solitary man is challenging, even lonely much of the time. My husband loves his thinking time, his quiet time, his unstructured, uninterrupted time; his time. It's easy for me to feel sad, short-changed, even angry, when I'd like a bit of interaction, conversation or attention and it doesn't materialize, even with effort on my part. Then this.

"Thank you for this vacation. Thank you for the times I was allowed to not participate in group activities. I'm serious. That was the greatest gift."

What can I say to that? To be honest, I laughed, but in my heart of hearts, I know this is intimacy at its finest for us both.
