Beholding Their Glory

100_5636

As the leaves finally surrender to the cooler air,

our hearts are lifted, our spirits soar

beholding their glory

reaching into the blue

we are infused

with their colors

so glorious.

Only a Thin Veil Remains

20170915_165459

Only a thin veil remains My Love, as the sun brings warmth

in the morning, a curtain of light covering over

our summer dreams, only to reveal

yellow roses in the garden,

where you and I are refreshed

by the crisp, cool air.

Our Wedding Anniversary

20170915_165528

Well I am just about the happiest man on the face of the earth! My wife and I are celebrating more than 30 years of our marriage! Yes!! Now we don’t give exact dates over the internet, but we are so excited I have to share this!

My wife is the one I write about, the one I dream about. Life can be horrible when terrible things happen (like cancer), but what matters now is the love we share, and the healing we give to each other!

I could not be happier, and we don’t often hear that from men, so I want to boldly declare that today.

And for our celebration, we went to Washington D.C. Our nation’s capital really is a beautiful city. I highly recommend a visit there. You will find some of the best museums in the world, including the Smithsonian, which is actually many museums.

The Smithsonian has the National Gallery of Art, the African-American Museum (brand new), the Native American Museum, the National Zoo, the Natural History Museum, and many others.

And the city is ethnically diverse. You will find some of the best ethnic restaurants in the world! My wife and I ate at an Indian restaurant which was wonderful.

I also recommend a dinner or brunch cruise on the Potomac River. There are very large cruise boats that feed you a wonderful feast, as you slowly cruise by some of the monuments of this beautiful city.
