Lost in Translation


More than a month ago, I was in a pretty large argument with my wife.  I acted pretty childish, but I remember feeling so justified.  I won’t go into the messy details, but after a couple of days, things were much better.  We were connected again.  It’s amazing to think about how different men and women are- how clumsy we can both can be communicating our love for each other.

Really, it’s like speaking two different languages. 

We hold out who we are with clumsy hands- these beauties that are fleeting, but even backed with good intention, sometimes they are misperceived and lost in translation.

    Perception is everything, and ours is generally weak. Except now. I see a friendly looking walrus that makes me happy and want to be his friend. With his clumsy hands, holding out who he is, from within a body and face like that, it must hard to find love, much less keep it. Not to mention fish breath.
