Remember Who 8 and What of September (sic)

“If good things lasted forever, would we appreciate how precious they are?”
-Slavic saying

As a tree must learn to bend when the wind blows to prevent it from breaking apart, together we have learned to bend in the bad times and stand tall during the good. May we continue to stand tall together for many more years to come...

A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.

Two centuries ago, C.S. Lewis wrote“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art, like the universe itself… It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.”

Squeezing, falsifying, accentuating, stiffening: Clothing has always been about artifice. And choosing what we wear has never been rational

After many years
Pleasure is a golden hillside,
Passionate and still.
Your bedrooms and your hands are free,
After unshed tears;
Now much of life is tucked away,
No longer touched by will.
In your hearts a wilderness,
Vast and undisturbed,
Empty of all sentiments
Renews the moment’s glory.
So may years of tenderness,
Also sung unheard,
Radiant beyond all sense
Yet tell love’s ancient story.

Love is the Last Frontier.  (Tom Russell)
