The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 488

‘Can one desire too much of a good thing?’
~Shakespeare, As You Like It

I recalled those words spoken by Rosalind in William Shakespeare’s play, As You Like It the moment my notifications panel lit up on the morning of Monday, 12 June (on my side of the planet) and I saw that G.O had shared yet another survival report update. I thought to myself, will he continue this relentless assault on our hearts, creating a desire for more and more as we count down the days of his return? Indeed he is spoiling us and making conditions ripe for the desiring. Nevertheless, I don’t think any of us believe that there could ever be too many G.O survival reports and/or updates of any kind  . . . ever.

Especially this kind . . .

If there is one thing about these survival reports that scream consistent is how relaxed and at ease G.O looks. Here with his glowing skin and bright eyes, he looks rested, refreshed . . . content. I admit that most of the time I am completely crushing on him but there are moments when I feel maternal (or, ok . . . like a doting older sister) worrying about his health and happiness, hoping he is eating well, resting well, playing well and yes, loving well. When I see G.O looking as content as his has over these past few months of steady updates, I am relieved and grateful. My worry dissipates the moment I see calm, comfortable . . . and yes happy, in his gorgeous eyes.
