Our wedding day

Happy 25th anniversary, my darling Shonnie. We’ve created a wonderful life together filled with love, intentionality and adventure, and I look forward to the next 25  (when I’ll only be 106)!

2008: We work diligently to elect Barack Obama president, & we celebrate his inauguration in Washington, D.C. in January 2009.

And today we celebrate!
