25 Years Ago

As I wrap up the public half of my day, I wanted to say something about what day it is.  This is the 15th of November, 2011, and as such it is 25 years, today, that I got married to my first wife Michelle.

I was with Michelle for just over 12 years, and so we did have a tenth anniversary together, before her long illness finally separated us.

But as it happens, just three weeks ago I celebrated my tenth anniversary of being together with my present partner Tamara ... so that would have been my second time.  And somehow I managed to do them both in the same 25-year period.

It is a strange, strange world.  They have both loved me very much, which has probably been stranger.  I have loved them both very deeply.  I could not help myself.

Quality post. I am sorry for your loss, but am pleased that you have once again found comfort.

It is good to remember those we have lost, and it is good to remember those who still stick around despite knowing us very, very well.
