Thirty-four Years

Our anniversary wedding

Thirty-four years! Thinking back on how we met; “One’s disco?” You introduced your dad as your uncle, funny! Remember that?

It is where it all began. We were so young and inexperienced. A young man asks a young woman to dance, instantly bringing them together, not expecting to unite and to share a life. I don’t want to sound cliche, but we have survived the turbulence, the trials and anything that was thrown our way in between.

The question that we get asked, “What is your formula for a successful marriage?” There is no set formula!

My advice is to, “laugh,  talk, cry, laugh some more and talk it out! The key is to talk it out!

I look forward to the next thirty or more years together.

With all my love,

It is a funny thing to reflect back on past events. You find yourself wanting the outcome to be different and walk away with a positive note. My horrific job experience has been replayed on and off in my mind for two years. It was the worst experience I have ever endured!

– Ayn Rand

I think back to when my words flowed, my creative streak was in full gear. My words came through like musical notes on a  page to form a beautiful melody. I am in a struggle attempting to create a work of art to keep you awe-struck!  Let me know, how I do at the end of this piece.

I don’t know about you, but I find myself questioning my creativity. Where has it gone? I looked forward to writing; I could not get enough of it!

I think I stopped writing when I started working. I spent two years on the unemployed island. It was what I did-It consumed me! The feeling of my fingers as I typed on the keys, the ideas flowing and seeing the finished product created by me. It was nothing like it.

It was what I did to avoid thinking about being jobless. The many job searches and resumes that were sent out. I can not begin to count how many and eventually,  I stopped counting. My escape was the writing which kept me from pulling my hair out!

I want it back, that feeling of oneness with ideas and the flow of words.
