Six years ago today you visited my blog! Since then, we’ve wandered the streets of Melbourne, played down on the peninsula at Indented Head, walked for hours along the Oregon Coast, eaten hot dogs and watched baseball in Seattle, road-tripped through Olympic National Park, followed the trail of Raymond Carver, drank wine and ate a whole lotta cheese in Paris, smelled the flowers at Monet’s garden in Giverny, eaten dimsum in San Francisco’s Chinatown and Korean bbq in Oakland, made snow angels at Lake Tahoe on my birthday, explored vineyards and wineries in Yamhill County, trekked through the Painted Hills with our beloved Big Red Baby Ruby, hiked the Columbia River Gorge, trekked out to the covered bridges in the countryside, and, of course, made my house into Our Home.
How cool is that?!
I love you, husband!
And did you get what
you wanted from this life, even so?
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved, to feel myself
beloved on the earth.
