Letters are romantic, which is why we are writing this introduction as such. All of us are romantic, whether we believe it or not. All of us experience times when our heart stirs, our pulse races, and our body stops dead in its tracks.
We are captivated by the romance of sunsets, seemingly endless bodies of water, mountains that reach toward the heavens, and the depths of the human heart. We are, in our own way, each captivated by the experience of being human. Discovering that experience is the ultimate romantic chase.
Both of us like to write. For us, it is how we process this beautiful, romantic, and captivating human experience. Our little boy Simon is often the fodder for our reflection. Babies experience the world new every day and are amazed by so many things we take for granted. He helps us tap into our human experience – who we truly are.
Our posts are a little poetry, a little spiritual reflection, some politics, but mostly an insight into how we experience the world. They can be idealistic or, on occasion, painfully realistic. Like everyone, we have our struggles, but we also have many joys.
We got married on November 8, 2014. Since then we have bought a house, had a baby, left a few jobs and began new ones.
This blog is a compilation of some of our favorite reflections and will be a place where we will put many more. We hope you find some love, peace, and hope through our words. We also hope that each time you visit, you will reconnect with your own most romantic, captivating, and beautiful human experience.
