And the stars answered…

a winter nights wish                        weez  february 14, 2002

tonight I stand and watch the crystal
brilliance of unshrouded stars
feet firmly planted on frozen earth
while a north breeze sounds wind chimes
and plays upon my face
with lips tasting cold winter air

my heart, my senses, and yes my soul
cries out to the universe
for the one to complement me
not complete me
for I am complete
and wish to find
another complete soul

I feel like I’ve always been a creature of the night, even as a child.   My senses become sharper the darker it gets.   And it’s amazing how much easier you can tell what season it is in the absence of light.  While I love the night and the moon it has been the stars that fascinate and speak to me the most.  When it is very still I can hear them… a faint whispering sound.  Almost the same sound a very soft and quiet snowfall makes.  Especially on moonless, frigid winter nights.  I will sometimes stand or lie down just to stare, listen and talk to them for hours at a time.  Ten years ago this very night was such a night.  Although I didn’t know it at the time, what happened that night was to change my life in six months.  I am still amazed and grateful for the gift those stars gave me.  I went out to listen to the stars and found that they were doing the listening instead.  And the stars answered…  They brought me my complete soul, My Elizabeth!  Sometimes Magic just happens.   Happy Valentine’s Day, Beloved!

Our V Day tradition

14 Feb

The best restaurant in town!

Our Valentine’s Day tradition is for us to eat at home.  When Elizabeth arrived home she said we had better be eating soon since the smell was so amazing.  The menu at Weez’s Organic Café this evening included Three Cheese Polenta topped with caramelized onions and garlic, Swiss chard, and fresh tomatoes; stir-fried grass-fed local sirloin tips; and a Ravenswood Cabernet Sauvignon to accompany the meal.  All the table settings–china, linens, candlesticks, and silverware–were wedding gifts from our friends and family.  We feel just the two of us makes it special.

For those of you who are still waiting for the one to complement you… take heart.  Elizabeth and I lived on opposite ends of the state and met at a youth group training workshop in yet another state.  I was 46 when we met.  Go figure!  Weeks later we realized it was meant to be.  Like I said earlier today “Sometimes Magic just happens”!
