The History of an Engagement with φιλια (cont.)

ii. An Interlude

Heart swelling–Do not urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay,* Ruth said. And Naomi, still learning significance in Ruth’s usages of You and I and We. The way You and I begs to become We. Your arms: your own. Your arms: your unique brand of embrace. Yet its existence necessitates We. You, your arms, embrace: inextricable in We.

 

 

*Ruth 1:16
