Smith: Still Here

“Cultural forces extol the alleged thrill of sexual escapades, the novelty of one-night stands and triumphs of unending libidinal conquests. What they can’t know is the unspeakable joy when a woman who’s slept beside you for 25 years rolls over in the morning and says, ‘I love you.’ Imagine how mind-blowing that is: this woman who knows everything about you, whom you’ve disappointed a thousand times, is still here.”

– James K.A. Smith (via Twitter)
