A magnitude 5.8 earthquake rattled Corfu and other western Greek islands Friday but there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage… thank goodness!

We all know love makes the world go ’round, but every once in a while it really gives it a good shaking.  Sorry for all the earthquakes yesterday.

Airport Bound…

Hi!  Not sure when you’ll hear from me again.  I’m throwing all the last minute stuff into the bags, including this laptop.

I’ll probably sneak a Xanga update in by Monday at least, from work.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

Three Weeks in Loveland

Tomorrow I leave for Loveland.  Twiddle38 is picking me up and taking me to the airport very early in the morning.

I haven’t made any arrangements for getting home.  I haven’t thought that far ahead.

I will be working only 20 feet from my love.  If we could actually see each other from our desks, we would be doomed.  My temporary apartment is only two blocks away.  I’ll be there until mid July.

I am in the middle of packing and preparing for the trip.  I can’t wait to see her!  I’m like a kid on the day before Christmas, and there’s a huge present under the tree with my name on it.

Some Novel Progress

I’m having problems getting to sleep so I stayed up working on my novel.  Happy with what I got … ending one important scene and ready to start another.  I’d keep going but I’m actually sleepy, so it’s time to call it a night.

I get to see my love day after tomorrow.  Happy happy!  I’ve got a ticket to Loveland.

There’s supposed to be WiFi in my room so I’ll be able to blog … but don’t be surprised if you don’t hear much from me.

Abbey Day

Miles upon miles, road signs pass
I feel distance dwindling
Our hearts are beating closer
Across rivers, valleys, state lines
The long dotted winding roads
Leads me to The Abbey and you

Nervous shaking hands clasped
We get lost in the narrow corridors
The crooked stairs and old window glass
To a room inside a chapel we find
A hundred pillows and lavish quilts
And sense the spirits of saints

The shower floods a room
We laugh with towels all wet
Quickly come to terms we do
With each other’s most intimate gaze
A belonging we never shared
With anyone else in this life

Sweet love made so dearly
Then outwardly we crept to stand
Before the statues of the church
Gaze of old, venerable holiness
We state our vows we already know
Marry each other in the eyes of Heaven

A year ago today my love
In your shiny eyes I see
My own joy and completeness
As we entangled our souls
Entwined as they should be
Forever and for always, I do
