Love Was No Easy Thing
Things were happening, at last, and living was so much better than dreaming.

Gil would call me everyday, and we would speak on the phone for hours. He would tell me which Pink Floyd song he was listening to, and he would sing me the verses he liked...

I wrote my number down on a piece of paper with the words wine, cof...
