My Life Is So That Epic

Never took piano lessons
But baby you're a grand
And I will learn to play the good notes
And tune you up the best I can

And I just might say it tonight
I just might say it tonight
I just might tell you tonight that I love you
And you should stay all my life


It's already midnight, but I've been playing this song all day because I got to attend and photograph a friend's re-commitment ceremony (for their 30th anniversary that's coming up) which was a moving experience.

Today is actually my second anniversary of being with Paul - two years ago tonight we sat by the riverbank and told each other "I love you" for the first time. =)

Summer proceeds far too fast. I work a lot. I read a lot. But fun things have been happening! For example, Paul and I went on an impromptu road trip quest to Leduc to seek out milkshakes the elixir of immortality. On our way we saw our second full, incredible rainbow of the month! (We saw the coolest rainbow ever right outside of our window the day before - I have panoramas of it that I may find time to post someday.) The rainbow actually pretty much landed right over the Castle of the Fairy Dairy Queen. The elixir tasted a little like raspberries. =)

We also went on the Edmonton touristy streetcar ride, which takes a streetcar on a rail system over the river and past the Legislative buildings, a ride which Paul had originally planned as part of our anniversary celebration. So that was fun.

We also just say a production of Othello at the Freewill Shakespeare festival in Edmonton, which was beyond Fantastic - the best Shakespearean play I've seen in person. Brilliant acting, haunting singing, truly despicable villian, and a strong, wise Desdemona that I loved. I've never seen her played strong before, but I totally saw it in her words and acting this time.

That's all I've got time to say tonight! But I do need to post more. If I had someone encouraging me to post it might happen more, so go ahead and remind me, friends...




Just wear your sweaters in the winter
'Cause I wouldn't want you to get cold
I hope that we're together when we're old...
