“There is no beginning to love,” Roger said. “It just creeps over you.” – from Quite a Year For Plums by Bailey White
With your heart my soul is bound
And as we dance I know
that heaven will be found
Well you send my life a whirling
Darling when you’re twirling
On the floor
I am enchanted by the idea of love creeping over a person. I remember when I went off to college, I planned to be a career woman and not even think of marriage until I was at least 25. The following summer I met a boy. When we went out we talked and talked and pretty soon I realized I was turning all the others down (not that there were many, but still…) By the time I was 25 I’d been married for five years and had two children. And 40 years later, we’re not exactly twirling on the floor but we are still talking. And we are both huge fans of The Avett Brothers. Can’t wait for the 25th!
