Love, Bonds and Relationships

To My Best Pal
Life with you
Is a happy adventure
A lovely life

The first photo is of Russell and me crossing
the Brooklyn Bridge last June.
We were there to visit Grace and Radu and to explore New York.
I was born in Brooklyn, but wasn't raised there. This was the first
time I had been back to Brooklyn since I was an infant. Neither one
of us had ever walked across this bridge before.
The second photo is of Russell and me crossing the Golden Gate Bridge
for the first time last April. We had taken the ferry from Sausalito
to San Francisco and had wandered down to Little Italy
for a wonderful 20th anniversary lunch.
When were about done with lunch I said
"Why don't we just walk home?"
So we did! It took us 3 hours and about 12 miles later we arrived
back at my cousins house! We'll be down there again this year for our
anniversary...and who knows maybe we'll cross that bridge again!
Happy Valentines Day!

Oh, I adore the poem and the story. I walked across the Golden Gate bridge for the first time in the past year. TWICE! I will add the Brooklyn Bridge to my list of walkable, famous bridges.

THANK YOU for the inspiration.

One of my love poems of the day.

Your words are beautiful, no need for long or convoluted imagery when you can show your love so simply. Great photos of you both too!
