Oh my. Came across an old blog post I had done on my first love and relationship. ”I fell of the last person I ever expected to fall for. But we understood each other. We had our own smiles and quotes. We acted like children that had their own secret friendship that no one else could be a part of. And we loved each other protectively and fiercely. The sacrifices we made for one another can not be counted.”

And with all the beauty in that relationship, there was the punched glass table, the wall spotted with blood (not mine), that one time I may have choked him and endless screaming on the phone. I ended the blog post wondering what our future dynamic would be. And two years leading into the present, I’m happy that I got an answer to my pondering. We still call each other every couple of months or so to catch up, we still share the same jokes and memories. We still encourage and push one another to be better. And more importantly even though it wasn’t needed, he still went ahead and said, “Man, sometimes I was such a jerk to you.” And I still went ahead and said, “God, I turned into such an asshole, didn’t I?” 

We forgave each other over two years ago before we even parted ways and we are just thankful that even though we play no role in one another’s life, we still have what we had.

Really in love with some of the illustrated works from African Suite by Jean Kalonji inspired by his search deeper into his background and his diary while in South Africa.
