The Woman I Love decided she was going to make her garage into a shared auto/living space. She found this really cool DIY furniture made using old pallets. She’s already epoxied her floor in preparation.
I thought it would be cool to have some other items that would match her pallet furniture. So, I made this table for her. All of it is reclaimed wood. The legs are discarded fence posts, the top supports are from a hardwood pallet I had, the side pieces are a piece of discarded decking board and the top is actually made from some shelves she gave me Saturday because she was tossing them to redo her garage.
I hope she likes it…I’m on the way to deliver it now. She has no idea I’ve made it for her.
I can hear the drone of air conditioning units running at homes next door. The low-rush of cars on the highway through the woods.
And the Love of My Life walking through her kitchen as she walks back outside to sit with me as we talk.

I saw this initially and immediately was flooded with thoughts.
Thoughts of being able to identify with it…or in Tumblr vernacular, “Fuck yeah!!”
I was typing the words that flowed from within. Words filled with feelings of vindication…release…triumph. And then it hit me..
It wasn’t with Love. Love should never be about ‘self’. It is instead about selflessness. The giving of self to the point of nothingness. Loving someone means it’s about them…their needs…their happiness. If I truly Love you enough to lay down my life for yours then there can be no room for my ‘self’. Love doesn’t require that it being returned in like-form, or even at all.
I Love You..
