There’s no love like first love.  What woman can forget her first?  It is all true – the silly things they say and sing about. I have felt it all.  I can admit it now. I’m old enough.  I can talk about it without embarrassment.

I remembered that moment of standing in the doorway.  The room was crowded and dimly lit.  Music was softly playing. My eyes furtively scanned the room.  I was caught by a pair of brown eyes looking straight at me.  He was very handsome and smiling at me.

I glanced over my shoulder.  Was there someone behind me?  Surely it wasn’t me he was smiling at.  I had my hand over my heart and a question on my face.  Who, me?  You want me?  He smiled and walked over.  In that moment I felt luminous.  The room stood still.  The noise fell silent into the background.  There was only me, standing and looking at him, thinking it can’t be true.

I am remembering all this  after many years.  I see it so clearly – the blue dress I wore, the friend I was with.  She was the one who kept pushing me to ‘pick up’ a guy.  But she was miserable towards me after.  I hardly noticed.  I had a prince charming.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.
