Is this the silence that bothers you?

I have written some more about marriage for my new column that will be published tomorrow.

I wrote this line: “I want to let go of silences. And pretences. The ones that take up so much space, everything else crunches up into a mess.”

Afzal read this after I had submitted it. A couple of hours later he came up to me and said, “You mean silences like this…?”

He was looking for silences. To banish them.

It takes very little to please a woman if you put a bit of your heart in it.

(oh btw, 10 years tomorrow. Send cake. And flowers. Thanks!)
