A lot can happen in a conversation

28 Years Ago Today My Wife Got Married

I was there too. It was cool.

Cold, actually. And snowy and sunny and windswept–just like today.

Did I mention the cold?

28Years-01042014-2A lot happens in 28 years: life (three, to be exact, off seeking their fortune in the wide world) and death, sickness (some) and in health (mostly). For richer (considering the entire globe—yes!) or poorer (not much of this).

Besides being gorgeous and lively and devoted and way smarter than me, one of the many things I appreciate about Kris (Mrs. Kirkistan’s name outside this bit of the blogosphere) is this long, long conversation we’ve had—28+ years’ worth. About everything under the sun: from travel to faith to work to philosophy to money to house repair (and lack thereof) to all manner of family issues to, well, you name it. The concept of Conversation is an Engine likely started 28 years ago today. I just didn’t start writing until 2009. The skinny guy with the (now) hipster glasses had only the barest inkling of the possibilities.

Hey—here’s to marriage (raises coffee cup jauntily)! I’ll just step away from this keyboard now and tell Kris how much I appreciate her. In real time.

  8. […] no cat fancier. And I’m more of a rent-a-tux kind of guy who enjoys being (already) married to Mrs. Kirkistan. But all this failure makes me wonder if Pinterest is curating my life into some odd, unforeseen […]

  9. Great post of a great relationship! What a blessing!
