5,840 Days of Renewal

Today, March 9th, was the 16th anniversary of my being married to Margaret Mary Towle. 5,480 days ago, we hosted about 150 friends and family in the shaded garden of our home in Los Feliz, in East Los Angeles beneath Griffith Park and its famous observatory. "The Villa," is an Art Deco era apartment complex that always reminded me of something you would see in a film noir from the 30's, much like Margaret. It was our home together while we studued English Literature at U.C.L.A. Palms swayed in the tradewinds as we were pronounced man and wife before parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, sisters, friends and those dearest to us, including many who now smile down upon us from the Heavens.

We have since lived in Berlin, Georgia, Hawaii, Olympia, Portland, and Salem. We have travelled across Europe, the United States and Mexico and even into Canada. We have danced in Prague, toasted Le Bon Nouvelle Année beneath the Eiffel Tower, walked the Maasai Mara in lion country in Kenya, hiked through the Olympic Forest, bathed in the Nordsee, overlooked the Grand Canyon, bodysurfed the North Shore, and laughed and loved on four continents.

I am so glad to share my life with such a bold spirit, elegant soul and beautiful woman as my dear beloved wife, Margaret. Sweet Heart, I miss your sweet carress and tender kiss.

Thank you for sharing your life with me for sixteen years. I love you.

From Kabul,
