Every, every minute - Charleston Marathon Part VI

Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it?--every, every minute?

No. Saints and poets, maybe--they do some. 

- Thorton Wilder "Our Town"

Being an occasional poet and knowing some saints, I can say without reservation or fear of sudden, inexplicable death that January 15, 2011 was one day that I realized life, every, every minute.

Where two became two

The other day was December 31, 1998 when I married Jennifer. Our families were intact with the exception of my dad who has passed 10 years earlier. It was just a perfect day, an idyllic setting in Rockville for our ceremony. Our dinner cruise in the Charleston harbor came complete with a glorious sunset.
