Nick told me that the first time he saw me he was so taken aback that he actually froze in place. He couldn’t take another step during those first few moments.
He told me the sight of me seared itself into his brain. Just like Lorenzo’s geese the first time they caught sight of Lorenzo and imprinted on him as their mother.

“If I’m not imprinted with you, how else”, he said, “could I take such delight looking at every single aspect of who you are? You are a continual source of amazement to me Jessica.

I love to watch your movements, the way you chew that chocolate chip ice cream you love. The look in your eyes. The way you brush your teeth, the way you order your food, your moods and your laughter and most of all your sense of humor. Your smile …
The more of you that I see … maybe it’s a pulse on the inside of your elbow or a fleck of darker blue in the iris around your eye … the more I want to see … the more I want to know and know … the more there is to see the more I get to enjoy.

I finally understood why he gets such a big kick from watching me brush my teeth every night.
