Love Given Time

September 24, 2018.  In a reflective mood, looking forward – an energizing mix!  Here’s a love poem to go along with sharing my news: partners for years (we gave each other time), Gary Kendrick and I became husband and wife on Friday – Autumnal Equinox – also 16th anniversary of meeting on Austin’s pedestrian bridge over Town Lake.

The owl in this image was purchased by my mother back in the ’80s when visiting me in Florida.  This bird made of shells has been with me since Mother’s death in 1990, reminder of her wise guidance through changes. The butterfly (also from the ’80s) and the owl sit side-by-side near the front door – encouragement to go on out and embrace inevitable change.

    1. VJ, thank you. I’ve had “time” on my mind for the past year, anticipating marriage, reflecting on the multi years with Gary and how we’ve each progressively gotten more at ease with our differences. Good to hear the poem (brevity!) captures the feelings.
