love is the every only god

who spoke this earth so glad and big
that even a thing all small and sad
man, may his mighty briefness dig

for love beginning means return
seas who could sing so deep and strong

one queerying wave will whitely yearn
from each last shore and come home young

so truly perfectly the skies
by merciful love whispered were
completes its brightness with your eyes

any illimitable star

Tomorrow is our 14th anniversary. I just can't get over that. On one hand, it seems like it can't be that long, and on the other, I can't remember (really) not being married. (or at least not being with C.) In November, we will have known each other for 20 years - more than half my life!

Our wedding was fun, outside, with picnic baskets and green grass and volleyball. I have no regrets - I've enjoyed the ride - and I'm still enjoying it! Three kids, two dogs, a few cats, we've bought and sold houses and cars and we still like each other. I don't think we could ask for more than that.

We still go out on dates, dance with, joke with, and tickle each other. We like to learn things, and do things (canoe, bike ride, hike) together and apart. We both have myspace accounts, and facebook accts, and spend our evenings watching tv & playing on the internets.

I am lucky, so lucky. We irritate each other occasionally, but that's ok. We get to make up after. <>

Here's to many happy returns of this day.
