Happy Anniversary Slim …. my god …….. 29 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 we hold the shared moments and travels, even the walks around our inner city community that much closer. Last anniversary we were in Ubud, Bali on a self imposed Boot Camp. So I've posted a snap of Slim in his happy place.
Slim 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 Slim 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 Slim in this blog it is with the greatest love and respect.
We will toast the day at our beloved Colombo Social ... because it has got the important things right and wander home via Mapo
