Hello from Sedona

Hey folks -- get me! I'm actually relaxing. We'll see how long it takes me to get used to the idea. Haven't been here in thirty years (what I chiefly remember from that childhood trip is Sliding Rock). The beautiful red rocks are visible just out my window:

[Yes, I know they're not in focus, but they were too bright at mid-day and better at twilight, if a little shaky.] Oh, and at night? A galaxy of stars -- beautiful!

Nice. I was there in January. It was brilliant. I was thinking about going back in that direction for the Spring Equinox (that's one of our wedding anniversaries :-), but you just can't predict the weather this time of year!

It was very cool in the mornings and warm midday, which was just wonderful. Especially after escaping the humidity of Houston, it felt incredible (even if I got nosebleeds from the sudden drop in humidity).

Wedding anniversarie*s*? Do tell!

Hee! How to condense some of the best stories of my life to the comments space? On Feb. 14th, 1996, we went for a swanky supper, and over our dinner plates we exchanged rings and said very smoochy things to each other. That was when we got hitched. Then, on the Vernal Equinox, 2003, we eloped in the most fantastic way, this time with a license. Silly reason, but not. I really wanted to put his name on my diploma (Ph.D.), and the school was requiring government documentation of marriage! So that's two. After another 10, I think we'll probably do it again! Getting married is a *lot* of fun! Colorado still has frontier-type laws. Very freewheeling when it comes to marriage -- couples are permitted to witness their own wedding(s)! You know, I just realized something. Both times, I wore red!

What a wonderful story! I'm all in favor of non-traditional approaches -- I wore black at my wedding, and a lot of our other folks wore costumes, too. That's the fun of the Halloween wedding.
