Thirty (30!) Years Ago Today

Okay, so this is not a thing of great consequence to anyone about to read this but me, but I just had to share this all the same:

Thirty years ago today, on a warm day with puffy cumulus clouds scudding across the serene blue sky after rain, I stood on a hastily laid white runner across the still-damp green grass surrounded by some of the best Collegiate Gothic architecture that this country has to offer, and exchanged marriage vows with the love of my life.

It does not seem like thirty years, and I have come to the conclusion that if we live to be older than Methuselah, there will never be time enough.

But I just wanted to say this. The man I married is one in 3-point-something billion, and--

YOU CAN'T HAVE HIM!

No. Really. You can't.
And it's not just me being dog-in-the-manger-ish.
He woke up once, shaking and haunted by a nightmare.
"What was it?" I asked.
"I was making love," he said.
"That was bad?!!" I asked, puzzled. He's a guy. Guys like this. Hell, so do I.
"It wasn't you!" he replied.
Now that's loyalty.

That is all.

A Few Words from the Wise

Speak to him, for there is none born wise.

-The Maxims of Ptahotep

~~~~~~~~~~


In mourning or rejoicing, be not far from me.

- an Ancient Egyptian Love Song

~~~~~~~~~~


But your embraces
alone give life to my heart
may Amun give me what I have found
for all eternity.


-Love Songs of the New Kingdom, Song #2

~~~~~~~~~~


To Know the Dark


To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is travelled by dark feet and dark wings.


-Wendell Berry

~~~~~~~~~~


Up in the morning's no for me,
Up in the morning early;
When a' the hills are covered wi' snaw,
I'm sure it's winter fairly.

-Robert Burns

~~~~~~~~~~


Visit to the Hermit Ts'ui


Moss covered paths between scarlet peonies,
Pale jade mountains fill your rustic windows.
I envy you, drunk with flowers,
Butterflies swirling in your dreams.


-Ch'ien Ch'i

~~~~~~~~~~


Mistress of high achievement, O lady Truth,
do not let my understanding stumble
across some jagged falsehood.


-Pindar

~~~~~~~~~~


Every Gaudy colour
Is a bit of truth.


-Nathalia Crane

~~~~~~~~~~


I counted two-and-twenty stenches,
All well defined, and several stinks.


-Samuel Coleridge
