Time Moves On

You know when your young, age is such a foreign and distant concept. I can remember, when I was 20, trying to imagine myself at 60 and I simply could not conjure up an image.
Never would I have believed that my hair would have gone south. (I'm still a little pissed about that:))
So we went about our daily routines, working, studying, writing songs, and playing music....and time moved on.
Things weren't always easy, and money was often tight, but we managed. We both worked two jobs, and found a way to make ends meet.
There were times she got so angry with me, that she could have carved me up with a paring knife and left me twitching in a laundry hamper. There were times I fantasized about a similar fate for her too, but those times were few. We learned to say "I'm sorry" and time moved on.
Later on, we both went back to school and our job situations improved dramatically. We sold the trailer and built our home. 
We continued doing the things we loved. We traveled, made new friends, played music, and grew up together....and time moved on.
Then last week a routine doctor's visit fired a shot across our bow. You would not believe the kinds of things your mind can conjure up when it's not sure what it's up against.
So, yesterdays news was a blessing, and I can't tell you how much I appreciate all the comments we received. I am humbled.
You can rest assured that we are ever mindful that time moves on, and it is our intention to never forget that fact.


  1. That's a great photo of two longtime friends and lovers.


  2. What a great photo! And good news!!

  3. Beautiful post. And, your image reminds me of the Captain and Tennille.

    You've summed up a good mariage very nicely...fight, forgive, move on. You had quite the scare.

  5. And the beat goes on......

  6. Look at you guys! Such a good looking couple. Our life here on earth is so short, but Jilda and you do so much good for others. If we can look back and know we have helped others, then our lives have been meaningful.

  7. Is that really you with your hair?! Oh wow! Well Jilda is as ethereally beautiful as ever and you - you are completely transformed - from grizzly brown bear to grizzly polar bear!

    So glad that awful health scare is now behind you all! Take care

  8. Your post evokes nostalgia and it is uplifting at the same time. A beautiful life. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Makes losing your hair pretty insignificant doesn't it? You guys rock. Maybe someday we'll get to meet. Would just love to hang out with you guys!

  10. Thanks y'all. It's been a fun ride.
    @Kitty, that's too funny.
    @Barb, maybe we could get up that way in 2012. I'd love to meet you in person. Sush lives in N.C. maybe we could do a blogger conference :)

  11. Beautifully worded. Two wonderful people with a lot of history behind them and much more on the horizon. Life is good.

  12. That photo is priceless...I have a few of my own that are similar! But the best thing is the no cancer report from the Doc..I hope 2012 is great for you both and I wish you much happiness! Happy New Year!
