Thirty-five years ago we set out together
only to painfully and frustratingly discover how very different we are.
For years we have been doing the clumsy dance
of trying to wed our differences and produce legitimate offspring.
Along the way about three decades in… we were surprised to discover
how very much alike we are in one vital way…
After suffering though our differences for a few years
and learning to celebrate them for a few decades

Country Road at Night

During my Junior and Senior years of High School dad would allow me to drive to northwest Ohio from our home in Greenville in western Ohio to visit a girl I met at camp. It was a trip of about two and a half hours—my first long drive alone.
