Six years ago today, we were legally married in the State of California, and my life hasn't been the same since. What a joy it has been. I am so very, very lucky!

Touched by an Angel

We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.

Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure
ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold,
love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls.

We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love's light
we dare be brave
And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free. 

-Maya Angelou

Six years?!!!
Ha! You're still newly weds.
But congrats anyway. For finding happiness and for really upsetting the Tea Party et al whilst doing so :-).
