about US, for ME

living in the now is the anthem.
but, appreciating the moment in reflection
also brings the past into the equation
of blessedness, appreciation,

WE were once in kindergarten, both of us thrilled with life and our new roles in it.
a few years and miles separated us.

it seems it took a long time to explore the world and our souls before we met

finally, we landed, in the same place. 
serious about our professions,  and celebrating our coming together.

many decades have passed, and our work has changed to 'play' in a way... 

his guitar and my camera take us to many places,
with mutual support and encouragement 

many things change in life: our appearances, our circumstances....

but we both realized that making a home in each other's arms is the 

~and knowing the importance of balancing the separateness
in our togetherness is the secret.

cheers, Dear!

and, of course, a kiss.


  1. What an incredible love story you have "told" here, Neva!! I am envious in a way, of the love that seems so deep, so close, so open and also inviting...inviting us in to share a bit of it too.
