Exactly 29 years ago, on a hot summer day in East Lansing, on the first day of the Clarion Writers Workshop, I met Kelley. Read the whole story here. (And there are more pictures from our life together here.) It’s been an amazing 29 years, getting better all the time. We will be having a lovely day involving Champagne and other delights.
The picture above is by Anita Corbin, shot for Visible Girls: Revisited. And below is a happy, beery photo of us taken last week with our friend Dave who was in town on an all-too-rare visit.
We plan to have a fine time. I hope you do, too.

You ladies have not aged at all! You look happy and healthy. May you have many, many more lovely years together. :) <3
Yes, well, your Visible Girls photo was only a month ago, as I just now realized, but you haven’t aged since May. :)
Beautiful. Have a wonderful anniversary! All my love for both of you.
@Ann: We’ve aged about a month in the last month, yep. And apart from MS yes we’re both healthy, and certainly happy.
@Teresa: Thank you!
Stunning pictures and an amazing peek at the life of two artists, learning and growing together. Thank you for sharing this with us.
@rhodrymavelyne: My pleasure.
You both look absolutely amazing! Congratulations!
@Joyce: Thank you! It helps that both pix are seriously low-res :) I hope the heat’s been treating you okay. I praise the universe everyday that I live in an era of air-conditioning…
I wish you happiness, both and ( a must ) LOVE…always.
The portrait makes a very show two strong women full of love and integrity. And the second photo is a great recording a time that happened. Congratulations!
What kind of graphic is on your shirt, Nicola?
@Kelly: The t-shirt is from Threadless; it’s their Lemon Aid designed by Jeff Battocletti. It reminds me of a non-profit I set up in the UK in the mid-80s called Lemon Aid. Lemon was slang for lesbian, so it was a fund to support practical and political needs of the lesbian community. But I didn’t really know how to make it work, so it died a natural death pretty fast. But I still have a fondness for the name.
