It’s my sweetheart’s birthday, and once again this year we’re apart (further than ever, this time). It’s just not right that at a time when we’re getting the hang of this “marriage” thing, and we’ve launched the kids and have time to spend together, and would be able to share the joys and stresses of full-time teaching, that a big ol’ ocean interposes itself between us.
For five out of the last six years, we’ve been saying that we sure hope that this is the last year we’re apart. Maybe this time, we’ll make it happen. In the meantime, dearly beloved Margaret, my heart is and always will be with you.
And I’ll see you in New Orleans….
