Promises to meet
just make it happen
The people of Albania have a high ethical code of Besa (Keep the Promise), which I first read about in a book summary in Reader’s Digest years ago.
“We’ll arrange to meet some time.” Years ago. Years later: “We’ll arrange to meet some time.” It’s at the corner of their mouth. It’s recorded in my mind. Failed promises.
“When A is over, we should meet for a drink and chat.” I reminded you recently. Ha ha, oh yes, you responded. Nothing since.
“X and I have been wanting to meet up to talk with you, to empathise with your challenges.” I remember, from months ago. You seem to have forgotten. I’m still waiting.
