"[My relationships were] like I was in these movies where the script was only half-written. When I’d get to the end of this half-script, the other actors wanted me to ad lib. But I had never gotten the hang of that. That’s why these movies were always box-office failures. Six of them in the past twenty years. I always blew the lines." ~ from my horrible first novel "Learn How To Pretend." (unpublished)(obviously)

Mood track

Because I can, that's why.

Got married!


Seven years after we met and a little over a year after we'd broken up, Danika and I got married this past Saturday. 😃

Togetherness Mantra

We'll be chanting this at the end of our marriage ceremony.

Oh, and Jenny Walton Dominique, the chanter in this video (and our close friend and yoga instructor, will be our officiant.)

Getting married in less than a week.

The minute I heard my first love story
I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was.

Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
They're in each other all along.

 ~ Rumi


After seven years (minus 7 or 8 months hiatus last year) of common-law living, Danika and I are making it official and getting married next weekend. The past year has been a struggle, but coming back together has helped us to see that the time apart was needed to see what we loved about each other. It sure as hell isn't some fairy tale wedding, but it's what's right -- where we belong.

And I Quote: Rumi

"Dance, when you're broken open
Dance, if you've torn the bandage off
Dance in the middle of the fighting
Dance in your blood
Dance, when you're perfectly free"
~Mevlana Rumi (1207 - 1273)
