Anniversary Thoughts

When I saw you, I fell in love. And you smiled because you knew.
—Arrigo Boito

It wasn’t quite that simple; it took each of us a little to realize how the other felt. But in retrospect, it seems that it was clear from the start. When he left after three days, I had a sense—the significance of which I was too young to recognize—that my future was leaving with him.

Thirty-one years ago today, I first met the Love of My Life. They haven’t been the easiest 31 years, but I wouldn’t give them up for anything.

Happy anniversary, LOML, and please excuse the minor liberties I took with these Eric Clapton lyrics.

If I could reach the stars, I’d pull one down for you
Shine it on my heart so you could see the truth
That this love I have inside is everything it seems
But for now I find it’s only in my dreams

That I can change the world
I would be the sunlight in your universe
You would think my love was really something good
Baby, if I could change the world

If I could be queen, even for a day
I’d take you as my king, I’d have it no other way
And our love would rule this kingdom we have made
‘Til then I’d be a fool wishing for the day

That I could change the world
I would be the sunlight in your universe
You would think my love was really something good
Baby, if I could change the world
