word for thought

Sometimes, when we’re lying together, I look at her and I feel dizzy with the realization that here is another distinct person from me, who has memories, origins, thoughts, feelings that are different from my own. That tension between familiarity and mystery meshes something strong between us. Even if one builds a life together based on trust, attentiveness and mutual support, I think that it’s important that a partner continues to surprise.

at this point i feel that i'm quite a ways away from marriage, but i was moved by his words none the less. i love the idea of still finding mysteries in your partner many years later. so romantic.
