Welcome to LIS!!
As an aspiring writer, I blog about whatever happens to move me at the moment -- though some posts contain serious content, my big-picture goal is to bring a little humor into an often humorless world! Welcome, y'all, and make yourself at home! Please make sure you update your bookmarks!
When you are offended at any man's fault, turn to yourself and study your own failings. Then you will forget your anger...Epictetus

Twenty-eight years later...
Mark and I have been married 28 years today. That's a helluva long time, if you ask me. I don't have any secret to a long happy marriage -- other than to say that while love may have come first, trust is actually more important. And he makes me laugh which has kept me from committing first-degree murder on several occasions. I'm sure he'd say the same for me. Quite frankly, we are comfortable -- a word which might strike fear into those who think that marriage has to be exciting or it's not worth it. I think craving -- and not getting -- excitement -- and just a plain lack of commitment -- is what causes so many divorces nowadays. But what do I know? At any rate, I have no desire to be on the market. I'll keep what I have -- because it just doesn't get any better.
