How Long?

3 years.

1096 days.

The average lifespan of an arctic fox.

I've had milk in the fridge for longer than 3 years.

But today, today marks the three year anniversary of the day that I took the flight that would change my life.  Three years ago today, I stepped off that plane, walked through the security gate to see a beautiful woman with her nose in a book sitting on the benches.  I walked right up to her and said, "Cora?"  She stood up, I hugged her and then I kissed that woman smack dab on the lips.

That kiss was 3 years ago.

Later that day, I met "The Daughter" as she walked slowly out of her school.  Then we went to find Jimi Hendrix's grave.

I would wait a whole day before, while spinning atop the Space Needle, I told her that I loved her.

And 3 years later, I love her even more.

I cannot imagine how I made it so long with her.  Without the two of them.
