Waiting and Watching and Believing
Sometimes things are not as they first appear in life or in this fandom. We have seen it time and again. Something happens and we think one thing and then a few days later, something else happens which changes our perspective. I do not put much stock in photos, people and/or narratives that materialize from unknown sources for unknown reasons. I prefer to take my cues from Sam and Cait.
Over the past three years, Sam and Cait have shown a special connection, one filled with a love, respect and admiration that I believe exceeds that of very close friends/colleagues. I could catalogue the list of reasons I think they are together, but others have done so previously and I do not want to go on for pages. If I only reflect back over the past six months - to the WCC campaign, Caitriona’s birthday tweets, Sam’s forehead in Paris, checking the baws photo, supporting each others’ charities, the ECCC announcement video, the Golden Globes Twitterfest, the Trainspotting 2 premiere, the People’s Choice Awards thank you video and Q&A video, the behind the scenes photos - wow, that is quite a list.
Here are two other reasons I continue to believe in Sam and Cait:
- their integrity and decency as human beings, as attested to by many who know them, have worked with them or have met them in real life and
- the sheer joy they show when in each other’s presence.
In my opinion, you can’t fake integrity or joy. And so, I wait and watch and believe. There is always more to the story.
