a number of dears have taken the time to write me this week, reaching across the miles to share intimate stories and perspectives and gems mined from their own marriages -- marriages seven, ten, and more than thirty years old. i study their words, turn them over in my mind, share them with christopher, tuck them into my heart. all the while, the sacred vows we'll soon make settle over me and into my bones.
it's hard to put to words the air, the poetry, of these days, but the vision i keep getting lost in is this: our spirits entangling themselves in one another, in the mystery of marriage, in the vast eternities.
