My wife Star Witch

My wife has kept me grounded for thirty-five years.  We still hold hands at night in bed as we fall asleep. 

She is Wicca or Pagan and celebrates the seasons.  Her favorite season of the year is Halloween. 

She has a broom that was made by an artisan in Appalachia Tennessee; it has a handle of sassafras and she always decorates it to the season.

 We have two cats, but the young (Kliban) Coon cat is definitely her familiar.

I was a hard case, on the highway to hell when she agreed to come with me – and I have never understood why. 

We have lived in a remote farmhouse with no plumbing, water or electricity while we attended college; we have traveled to Alaska twice, for a total of eleven years teaching school in the remote Indian and Eskimo villages; 

we have shared multiple-lifetimes of adventures during our time together; and I can truly say that the thirty-five years I have been with her is the only quality time of my 70++ years.

And if there were eternity
I’d love her there again

  1. You both are truly blessed. You live in a magical world of each others love.

  2. You're a lucky man! And you know it, which is special and wonderful!

  3. I love that you have each other..I love those faces.

  4. This is so wonderful. What a trip you're had together! And adventures to come, too, I'm sure. Thanks for sharing.

  5. If there is only one lesson to learn in this life it must be loving and allowing oneself to be loved. You make a very beautiful couple.

  6. What a wonderful tribute. May you share another 35 years just as loving and joyful.

  7. I'm recuperating from a broken arm and have been off the computer for over a month - just catching up now. This is, by far, the best blog post I've read! Wishing you both a wonderful 2017!
