Happy anniversary my love. After 28 years you have known me longer and better than just about anyone. Oh my parents and my siblings have known me a little longer, but not as well. We've gone through a lot, the incredibly happy and the incredibly sad. We've built a pretty astounding life together. Thank you for all of it.
27 years ago today, loracs and I signed a lease to an apartment in downtown Oakland two blocks from where I was living at the time. My mother was terrified because I was moving from a rent controlled, subsidized apartment to live in sin. Together we have been through a lot (especially the last few years). I wish it had been easier for you. I wish I could do more. I love you, sweetheart. Here's to 27 more years or however it works out.
