Today is the day.  The day I have waited for 30 years.  The day my same sex marriage license becomes a marriage license.  The day we become just another married couple.  The day I hoped for, but thought I might not see in my life.  The day I smiled all day and kissed my wife on the front steps of our home.  Today the Supreme Court said I do to declaring bans on same-sex marriage unconstitutional.  The day I saw the hearts filled with love and joy.  Today I go to bed an equal.  Today was the best day.

Rainy Day People

Felt like a rainy day person today.  I only left the house to walk the recycling to the dumpster.  I stood at windows and watched it rain.  I thought about where the rain goes and really did not do much of consequence today accept laundry.  I feel a little like a slug.  Guess the overcast day got me down.  Glad I don't live in Seattle.

Cue Gordon Lightfoot.

Earlier this week I removed all my keys from the old house off my key ring.  It felt like I was breaking up with someone.  I was sad the rest of the night.  I keep asking myself, "Why are you being such a baby about this?"  I can only say that all those years made the old manse my home and I am missing the comfort of knowing I am home.  One day this house will be my home and I won't feel so displaced, but not today.
