Ten Years Today.


If "A" looks up to "B"
Then by nature of the physical universe
"B" must look down on "A"
Rather like two birds
Positioned
One on a tree
And one on the ground

Or so thought She
Who had always wanted to marry
A man she could look up to
But wondered where that
Would place her
If she did.

Imagine her astonishment
When she met Him and found
That together they stood
Physics on its head.

You could never 
Draw this on paper
For it defies design

But year after year
They lived a strange 
Arrangement
That by all known laws
Could not occur.

She looked up to him
And he looked up to her.


-C.L. Pearson


This is one of my favorite poems, one that I often think of when I consider the blessing and intent of our union, and being the luckiest partner to such a good man.

Here's to continually defying design, and standing physics on its head.

Marriage is the best.

Ten years. TEN years!
I still can't get over it. It seems like such a long time. In the grand scheme of things it's just a moment in time but it's sure been a productive, joy filled, challenging, beautiful, hard, happy moment, hasnt it? :) Love you both. Congrats on the big ten.
