pears and bananas


The limitations of this blog have never been so clear as this week, when we’re having a pretty stressful time with a lot of career and personal stuff, and there’s absolutely no way to share any of it. Back in the early days of this site, in the doldrum and delirium of 2002, it seemed there was very little at stake, and I could spew forth regardless of consequence. Believe me, if I could have utter editorial freedom these days, this site would be a real frickin’ page-turner.

But it’s all cool. The three of us have each other. A few weeks ago, Tessa and I celebrated our fourth anniversary, and I’m still in awe of how amazing this chick is. The toddler than she birthed ain’t bad either. Happy Labor Day from us to you.

    I am always sending good thoughts your way. . . hope all ends well.
    Congratulations on your anniversary. You are one of my favorite couples! (yes, it is true that I have never “met” Tessa, I am but a faint background memory for Ian from his early college years, etc., but I spend a little bit of time each day touching base with the Blake-Williams family . . . and YOU GUYS ROCK.

    Happy anniversary to two amazing, talented people. Even though you aren’t able to share much of what’s happening in your lives these days, I feel that I know you and like you both — all three of you, including La Luz of course — very much. I hope that doesn’t scare you! LOL But it’s part of why this is the first blog I read each morning, and trust me, you have some worthy competition for my attention.
    Someday, if things ever calm down for y’all, there should be an XTCIAN festival where we can meet, greet, shmooze, even debate; maybe in NYC. Some of your readers have become regulars at each other’s blogs, and I’m grateful for those virtual introductions as well.

    Good luck with the stressors whatever they may be. Sounds like you know what’s really important and that’ll make it all okay.
