Whether written or verbal, some emotions are difficult for me to express. Some are forgotten, but there are those once in a life-time experiences that simply refuse to be dislodged from one's memory. I take great delight in sharing one of mine with you.
I do not recall such an emotion before or since, and most likely I never will; but with that romantic memory, once was enough. A man's heart can only take just so many butterflies.
I remember the year, the occasion, and that night. It was one date to remember with one lasting love.
We had just finished dinner at a nice restaurant, and within a couple of blocks, while driving, I felt a strong bubbling inside of me. I felt so good, I pulled over, stopped, and kissed my date.
That butterfly emotion was clearly a love token to me. I sensed that it was far beyond another short-lived infatuation. I was struck with a fever, and within 18 months, we were married.
Through good times and bad, sometimes hot and other times not so much, that fever has matured into a covenant, a commitment, and a devotion that have lasted for more than 45 years.
