Yes, I must agree : It is very wll written.
I would add that any kind of personal partnership includes some sort of emotion. Therefore it's quite good - imho - to try to include the emotional impact of that - following my own thesis that "a writer must substitute the reader's senses with words", or to put it in other words : The writer is an Emulator for senses. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

And yes, I agree - the emotional side must be shown. I like your description of writing as "substituting the reader's senses with words". I'd say that was very true, and a great way to put it <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
