Today is a beautiful sunny day and I don’t want to spend too long inside, so here is a tweaked repost of something I did last year.
Today is the 28th anniversary of the day I met and fell in love with Kelley at the Clarion Writers’ Workshop.
You’ve probably seen this photo before. I posted it the day the Supreme Court struck down DOMA—which just happened to be our 25th anniversary. (Thanks, SCOTUS! Second best present ever.) The one on the left was a Polaroid taken in 1989, by Kelley’s mum I think. The other is by Jennifer Durham, taken in May 2013 in a pub in Seattle.
This next you may not have seen, particularly the one on the left. That was taken in 2000 aboard the QE2 during the transatlantic voyage we gave ourselves for our 40th birthdays. Some of those sparkles (on Kelley—her arm and her dress) are actually sparkles; some (on me, sigh) are just bits of dust on the scanned print. The other photo is by our friend Mark Tiedemann, taken in our house in Atlanta in 1992.
And finally here’s the shot taken the day we got legally married, by the inimitable Jennifer Durham.
And one year ago SCOTUS, for the second time, gave us a fabulous anniversary gift, the Best Anniversary Gift Ever! In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court made same-sex marriage the law of the land.
Life is good.

@Mark, @Stephanie: Clarion and Clarion West changed our lives, pretty much.
I remember the news about you meeting Kelly and your recognition of how life changing it was as if yesterday. Can it really have been so many years? You were right of course. How awesome is Kelly to have captured your heart so. Congratulations X
