Something clattered outside of the room, causing me to feel a flash of irritation. I must have communicated this because a second or too later this was said:
“Lighten up Nicola”. (This is also said quietly before)
Asking who was there, I was told:
“This is John”.
I later found out that my husband had been wearing a baseball cap all day. This made me wonder whether they had taken a peek. Either into our minds, or into our physical home. I don’t believe they are usually here when we are communicating – I don’t get that impression at all. But my mind is open. Certainly they are aware of any state of mind that may inhibit our connection or relationship because it is always addressed.
