That's not a path! That's a dry streambed!

So runs the sequence of events that my kola and I think will make up our first true argument.


We wander a lot. Find a park and walk in, ignore the marked paths and see what can be found. Deer snacking away in the underbrush? Seen it. Oak trees as big as skyscrapers, wrapped in mistletoe? Seen. Rivers gently whispering in the afternoon sun, and full moons as bright as spotlights? Seen them.

Well, on one of our more epic wanderings, this exact situation came up. No marked path, so we were stuck using side trails and dry streambeds. Got us home safely, but now and ever after, our destiny is fixed.

"That's not a path!"
"Yes it is!"
"It's a dry streambed!"
"There are footprints in it!"
And on. :-)

All in all not a horrible argument to suffer ... ;)

The benefit, of course, of having discovered in advance what our first argument might be, is that as soon as it does come up, we will just start laughing instead of continuing the fight. :-)

I could quote another song here, but fear starting another epic sing-a-long.

Suffice it to say, I'll just mention that if wanna see a rainbow, you'll have to stand a little rain.

I have a feeling that whatever you may argue about in the future, you'll find your way melodiously through it. ;)

Choose the path unchosen. OR the Path that really isn't a path. we all like living on the edge.

That's one of our standards for hiking. If we come to a split in the path, we always take the road less traveled by.

Naive-no-more has a valid point. And two is always better than one. You may have issues, and she may have issues--but together, you have no issues. All is well. As Luther would say, "I'd rather have bad times with you, than good times with someone else...."

I know....I don't want to start a song epidemic either.

As I see it, combined, we are kind of like two sets of walls, creating a building. Mine? Brick and steel. Strong for most things, but weak in others, and needs something to smooth its looks out. Hers? Carved marble and glass. Not as strong, but beautiful and elegant. Combined, each of us covers the weaknesses in the other. :-)

Good Lord, no wonder Bainwen loves you! Well (and romantically) said, friend!

And somewhat exaggerated. Marble and glass?

Just polished river stone at best, my love, if we're using geological analogies. :-)
