just the two of us

"Just the two of us. We're in it together. The pleasure will be ours alone. For the rest of our lives." Mark Helprin

From an early age we seek various forms of companionship. Two people - whether spouses, siblings, best friends, parents and children, or even pets and owners, can form an everlasting bond. While groups and communities are wonderful, sometimes all we need is that one person to make us laugh, provide a shoulder to lean on, and make us feel needed.

While watching the sunset recently, I admired this older couple strolling hand in hand along the shore. There is no way of knowing whether they met a week ago or 50 years ago, but you could tell the two of them shared a special and tender connection. I love the way this photo by DocUNC so beautiful displays that feeling of comfort shared between two people.
