"You and me.

"I mean. There are people all over the world whose interactions are simple and clean and generally lead to good things happening, right?

"I said you have choices, but just maybe we don't really.

"I just mean that maybe it's just chemistry.

"You want what you want and you can't stop wanting.

"Maybe it's that simple."

Nick George, Dirty Sexy Money

Sometimes it just is.

Sometimes you walk into a room and you know someone is looking at you.

Wherever you walk, whatever you do.

You can feel the intensity of that person's gaze upon you just as surely as yours is upon them.

It makes the hairs on the back of your neck rise and warms you until you must glow like the Ready Brek kid.

You move around each other strategically, occasionally meeting up and spending a moment.

Never touching.

Fingers so close together, millimetres apart and yet never actually putting skin against skin.

And yet the connection is there with the solidity of concrete.

For as long as it takes.

Perhaps forever.

it makes me realize we are more primal than we understand.

Indeed, Boxer, any peahens reading this will empathize entirely. It's more or less what they feel when the peacock spreads his plumes.

Definitely primal. Such an amazing feeling.
