All of us have been conditioned, even though we may not put it in such crass terms, to believe that if you love me six units, I should love you at most six units in return. I can feel secure in loving you six units because you have already committed yourself that far. But if you get annoyed with me and stomp out, slamming the door, I should pull back, at least temporarily, my six units of love.
I love hydrangeas, whenever I am at my mimi's house at the end of summer I always pick some and put them in an empty vase so they dry. They look gorgeous and will last forever ♥
