Eleventy Years Already?

Many aeons ago--or 11 years--life changed dramatically for the better.  Some Random Chick from Oregon emailed me out of the blue to talk about politics and activism.

Yaddah yaddah yaddah, Ericka moved all the way across the country.  A nice start to our lives together was it happened in the blissful epoch of hope and change that was just beginning:

Outside the LIttleton, NH, headquarters after a long night celebrating an historic event.

After the Bush Interregnum, what relief!  Now we find ourselves in another precarious epoch.  Family sustains.

Yes, our kids bring light into our collective lives. But for me most of all, the Love of my Life.  Who took a risk to relocate to the Other Coast.  Who didn't run away upon discovering my domestic...quirks.  Who worked so hard to provide for her family.  Who taught me the need for organization and joy of making a bed.  Who has stuck around at times when I really didn't deserve it.  Who makes me laugh because she's funny as fuck.  Who is the most thoughtful and smartest person I've ever known.

And she brought us back where we belong in the Pacific Time Zone

Life's different in this point in space at this time in history, but in some ways not.

It's been a great ride.  I love and adore you Ericka.
