Happy Anniversary! These Go To Eleven!


Eleven Years On
Eleven years
One dog
Four cats
Three grandchildren
Two nieces
One house
Three cars
A dozen elections
Two dozen concerts
All the homemade pizza and wings we could eat
And we're just getting started.
Happy Anniversary, I love you!

Happy Anniversary (by an order of magnitude)! I love you!


A Perfect Ten
Diez, Dix, Zehn, Tio, Dieci, Десять, Deset, Kymmenen, दस, Tíu, Mười...
How long is that in relationship years?
Must be at least a hundred, right?
So how is it that it feels like it was just a few days ago, I was headed west to meet you?
Never knowing, never imagining
That ten years on I would be sitting here marveling
At how very right this all turned out to be.
I'm not surprised anymore, but I am still amazed.
Happy Anniversary, I love you!

Happy Anniversary! I love you!


Nine Years On
Somewhere in the Wayback Machine
You'll find two people
Rubbing their chins and wondering
Is this going to be another bust?
Or is it the real deal?
Fortunately for us here in the present
For reasons only they could explain (or not)
Those two decided
That is was worth finding out what it would be
Without worrying too much about what it might be.
Guess we owe them one.
Happy Anniversary, I love you!

thematic photographic 424 - green!


"Extreme Votivation VIII"
Raleigh, NC - July 2010 (Click to embiggen)

Green it is, then. Interesting fact about green: the human eye can detect more variations of green than any other color. I don't know why that is, possibly because it falls dead-bang in the middle of the visible spectrum, but it's the reason that green is used in night vision equipment rather than black and white.

I didn't need night vision gear for this shot, though, just some cheap fireworks and a hollowed out votive candle. And something to put the whole rig on that wouldn't get wrecked by melted wax.
