Whom we yearn to see

Doorreflections Reflections on a winter's day / Feb. 2010

“... the desire of companionship is an ineradicable instinct; and as our domestic affections place us with our next kindred in constant companionship, so our social sympathies establish a certain periodical intimacy with our circle of friends, whom we yearn to see from time to time by a law of nature like that which draws the earth to the sun after a certain interval of banishment.”

~ an excerpt from "Visitor" published in Harper's Magazine, Vol. 19, 1859
