The other day he commented that he'd heard intimacy defined as "to know and be known" and said that for him, he and I share that to a greater extent than he does with any other human. It struck me as a supreme definition and I realize the desire for this, "to know and be known" is strong in me. For me depth in a relationship is it's measure of worth. This is also true for him.
That desire, "to know and be known," is, for me, a strong driving force behind blogging.
