This Thursday would have been our 10th wedding anniversary. Although we were a couple for longer than that. I realized a couple of things recently.
- That I have been a widow longer than we were married.
- That I have lived in the home we built in Hutto the same length of time I lived on Alpha Collier.
Last night I watched The Three Faces of Eve. This morning I noodled around google about Joanne Woodward. I came across this collection of photos of Joanne and Paul. Beautifully curated. I was jealous. I wish we could have had 50 years like that.
Was reading my AARP magazine. (Jim did not like AARP). There was an interview with Andrea Bocelli, whom I adore. (you can listen to Andrea sing “Love in Portofino,” from his new album, Passione on this site as well). I love this quote from him:
“I was an agnostic until I realized that I had to choose between God and fate. The idea that humanity and nature are the result of fate was not convincing at all. I find the presence of God everywhere.”
I bought pink and red tulips this week. When we lived in Holland I loved the Queen of the Night tulip.

A couple of weeks ago, Jim was in a dream of mine. A very rare thing. I held his face in my hands and felt his skin. Hi sweetie. Happy Valentine’s Day.
