I can’t believe I’ve been posting pictures and comments to this weblog for months now and have not posted about my wife Anne. Well, here it is: I married “up” and not in the traditional way (although maybe that way too). My wife is smarter, more secure, cooler, and a better person than me, maybe “classier” too. Hey, I’m not bad, but she’s my guru when it comes to being a good person.
It’s summer here now and summer in rural Connecticut is a pretty wonderful thing. She’s from southern Indiana and so, comes alive in heat (I wilt a bit) and so our garden is going strong, there are flowers everywhere, and things are really good. She’s prancing around, done with school for the summer and off into her reading, gardening, kayaking, yogaing world.
Here’s something else: my wife supports my happiness and me hers. Sounds trite. It’s not. Different things turn our respective cranks and we’re there for each other. We celebrate our differences and know that they make us stronger as a couple and as friends. Again, sounds trite but trust me, it’s deep.
I get to go to New Orleans tomorrow which is a great destination, and I’ll see some great people while there but the knowlege that she’s here is enough to make me want to get home as fast as I can.
