23rd Wedding Anniversary!!!

'Marriage Contract'
The Jewish Museum, New York, 1989
Acrylic and vinyl paint on canvas, relief print letters
35x30 inches

23 years ago tomorrow, my husband and I said our 'I do's'. We did not sign a traditional wedding contract, but, when I showed him this picture I have in my weekly date book, (from the Jewish Museum), on this very week of June 12-18, we were both ready to put our names on the dotted line. It seems like a life-time ago, (certainly, Edward's life-time). We made a commitment on that day, re-newed our vows on our 10th anniversary in the presence of Edward (he was so excited!!!), and now we find ourselves shaking our heads, in awe. The years have been marked, like everyone else, with joy and sorrow, life and death, good health and bad, for richer and for poorer. We are still standing, very much a unit, a team, one in spirit. We find, that more than anything, we are grateful, extremely grateful for one another. We think that's a great place to be after 23 years!!

Happy Anniversary Jimmy!!
