Last week my dearly beloved celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary in the Napa Valley.
We ate wonderful food, sat by the pool and enjoyed the scenery.
Before we left I made him a card, thinking of the August theme of fire over at CED.
The thing about being with your partner for longer than you were alive before you married (I was 26) is that the fire of your relationship really becomes like embers in a very hot fire.
The kind you stare into in the dark of night and see things and tell stories around. The kind of embers a shaman would weave tales of fortune and folly around. There is a history and a warmth. And most importantly, love.
