May 27, 2017, Superior- I adore strong couples. I was surrounded, in childhood, by husbands and wives whom none of us could imagine being without one another. Of course, there were the ones who just could not get along, and who went their separate ways; they were three, out of thirty six, or so.
I spent the afternoon at SunFlour Market, with two dear women friends, whose combined spirit could brighten the gloomiest of days. Both are happily married, and in fact, I met the husband of SunFlour’s owner, and saw that he is very much involved with his wife’s success. The younger couple could be my own children, and in fact, I feel like I’ve known the wife forever. A musician was also present, playing a truncated guitar, produced by Go Guitars, of California. His wife later came in, having just enjoyed a special health-related treat.
Four of us got onto the subject of keeping oneself healthy, in the face of aging. Three of us are in our sixties and my young friend is forty-something, looking mid-thirty-ish. We agreed that it is the blitheness of one’s spirit that keeps us going, as well as using the purest of foods and personal cleansing products. I fully intend to keep on with that, for decades to come. I want the same for everyone else, as long as their quality of life is intact. No one should suffer, years on end.
I want to see married couples enjoy one another, also for decades to come, and to grow ever closer, not apart. Someone dear to my heart will marry next year. Someone else dear to me has found a person with whom to build a relationship. As I write this, I see the face of my departed love, smiling brightly. I may be a lone wolf, right now, but I know the full joy of being in a strong bond.
