on love

12.01.2010

The more familiar two people become, the more the language they speak together departs from that of the ordinary, dictionary-defined discourse. Familiarity creates a new language, an in-house language of intimacy that carries reference to the story the two are weaving together and that cannot be readily understood by others.
Alain de Botton, On Love


Feeling blessed this week that Mr. C & I have a wonderful mutual understanding of each other, a special companionship, and language all our own.
