May 1, 1995

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I have traveled the paths of desire
Gathering flowers and carrying fire
Raising a grave to the reasons behind me
Looking for strength as you live to remind me

I am crossing the bridges of sorrow
Empty with yearning and full of tomorrow
The river is high and the bridges are burning
I know I’ve been hurt but I keep on returning

I’m drawn to you ...
I’m caught in you ...

~ October Project

Eleven years ago, my life changed forever.
Never will I doubt that Phoenixes do rise from the most desolate of ashes.
To the twelfth year of our journey. I love you, Hub.

What a wonderful turn around from despare to fulfilled desire. I hope that the next eleven and the next eleven and the next are just as happy as the last.

Hope you had a wonderful anniversary, clew and hub!

I feel like a ghost sneaking into your blog since I've been absent so long. I have a small window of time that I can get to a computer and don't get to everything and everyone that I'd like. I miss you, gf!
