Happy Anniversary Anon …. my god …….. 28 years, F . . K!
I posted this last year..a milestone. Nothing has changed except to say we do not take this relationship for granted. We are at a time in our lives when some of our dearest friends have died, so we hold the shared moments and travels that much closer. So for this anniversary we are in Ubud, Bali on a self imposed Boot Camp, celebrating the anniversary while getting fit …
Anon is my rock. When a partnership works the parties involved are better together than apart. That is us. We are different, to be sure …..
There is no task that Anon will not doggedly ….. some would say stubbornly …. see through to the bitter end. He reads instructions, drilling down to the most intricate detail. He is numerate in a very impressive way, has a big soft heart, cries easily without embarrassment, loves the smell of chlorine in the morning, would love a dog but owns a cat. He is happiest in a pool with an icy beer and a good book.
This sums us up………Laurie Anderson talking of her partnership with Lou Reed.
“Like many couples, we each constructed ways to be – strategies, and sometimes compromises, that would enable us to be part of a pair. Sometimes we lost a bit more than we were able to give, or gave up way too much, or felt abandoned. Sometimes we got really angry.
But even when I was mad, I was never bored. We learned to forgive each other. And somehow, for 23 years, tangled our minds and hearts together.”
So when there is mention of Anon in this blog it is with the greatest love and respect.
We will toast the day with a Virgin Hemingway – what an oxymoron – having embraced health, for at least the month of Feb.
