When we first met, it was kind of awful.
It was awkward and ill-timed. Perhaps too soon.
The anticipation of meeting you almost overtook me.
And then your attention and affections were elsewhere. Eyes jetting to and fro, but never truly on mine.
And I was present, but you were somewhere else.
I expected so much more, and that may have been the problem.
But first impressions are quite something.
"Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity."
- Simon Weil
