Hitched

Okay I confess I did get hitched this past week and it was simple and lovely. I said yes when I got home from my travels west as I was shocked and surprised by the spectacular ring my beloved organized and had made for me…that was the very thing that pushed me over into his arms for good. I am still in shock that he took the time to sort out such a fine bit of bling for me. What a gentleman scholar lover best buddy. I am the luckiest gal in the entire universe. It isn’t that I don’t think I am deserving of this lovely attention or that he doesn’t love me etc…it’s just that we both are fairly self focused and busy and who thinks of things like this especially when we have been together for so long. You see this is where I am so wrong about things. I never think men can think ahead that way. It’s bad of me to be so biased in fact I now realize that you guys are pretty romantic when moved and very selfless in action when motivated. So there it is…My friends and family approve of him and I think they see him better than I do. I do take note. In fact my friend Michael Silverblatt thinks my husband is a LORD compared to some. I love that because to me he is something alright not always lord like. I know I am far, far, far from perfect I do a host of things too much, I know. So maybe it is miraculous that at nearly fifty I am newly wedded. It was 20 plus years ago since my last marriage and I guess I am due. I would like to shout out to TB on his bravery and move to Europe. Keep in touch and to my esteemed and very ill ex headmaster from Ojai Valley School Mike Hermes who is terminally ill with cancer. I don’t have anything of comfort to say that you don’t already know and hear daily. I trust this process called life and death is natural and fearless if we allow it to be. I love you and I know you are safe sound and going to an even more spectacular place. I have a hunch afterlife is fabulous because I said so…no angels just easier and more relaxed and fun. Also very interesting and filled with ah ha! Moments of pure wonder...that is enough.

CONGRATULATIONS Rae Dawn!! Glad to hear you finally took the plunge! Much happiness to you both! I'm sure your son is happy about it too.

Sorry to hear about Mike Hermes being ill. Ojai has lost a lot of good people recently, my youngest brother being one of them. He use to come with me to the Sand Dollar in "the day". I was just talking with Todd from the Zmen and some of their friends are trying to get a reunion going. We are all going to see Alan Thornhill and Martin Young along with the old Rincon Ramblers tomorrow night. That should be a blast from the past!
