get to know me

The care and feeding of introverts is not really all that complicated.

edited to add: One of the things I love most about Julie is that being with her is just like being alone. Another of the things I love most about Julie is that when I told her that once, she immediately understood.

Being able to share solitude is a GREAT gift... as is knowing it to be a gift. A related talent is being able to appreciate companionable silence.

I've been loving the companionable silence thing, ever since the boys started going to sleep (well, to bed and staying there) on their own. Nothing like quietly reading in bed with your sweetie.

That is EXACTLY how I described Sean to himself. And he totally got it.

Solitude is...ah. But in short supply with little ones around.
