Better times with humans

Thursday evening.  Home from work.  Exhausted.  Glad to be home away from the bizarre humans, glad for the peace of solitude.

Friday vacation day.  Slept a lot.  In the evening, spent an hour and a half talking with someone I like. I really enjoyed it.  I like people.  

Saturday a big day.  Left my house 7am, got home 10:30pm.  Around humans all day.  The people in the crowds -- I didn't know them, but I like being around them.  They are the kind of people I feel good about being with.  The people I was with -- I know them.  I like them.

A three hour trip by car.  Six hours round trip.  I spent six hours confined in a small space with them. I did not get annoyed with them.  My liking of them only increased.

I always give rides to people.  A half dozen people have been my passengers for various trips in the past few months.  I enjoy the company.  I enjoy being useful.

Sometimes I get tired though. Sometimes I feel like I'm tired of helping other people.  When is anyone going to help me?

He offered to take a turn driving. I let him.  I sat in the passenger side and relaxed.  I didn't have to be in charge any more.  I trusted him to get us home safely.

It's like when I dance with a partner.  He's leading.  I open up, listen to where he wants to take me.  I don't have to be in charge any more.  I put my trust in his hands.
