A rambling train of thoughts about the universe and our micro solar system consisting of our dear Sun and other planets in a magnetic dance while we hurtle through space on the face of a rock and stare at flat screens where we attempt to connect while we detach.

Three, Twenty Seven
Thirty years ago I arrived here
Not having one clue as to why exactly
I needed to be.
I collided with Fred in a
spiritual way &
he insists he met me years before,
I was twenty three.
We lived together for
3 years while we sorted out
whether it could be more
than either of us
(oops, I meant 27 years ago...edited today :) mg)
5 days ago,
I said to Fred,
"we should get married."
"how about Saturday?"
So we did.
We had to have blood work then
to get a license and
wait at least 3 days
just in case per the law at the time.
Fred got the town clerk's husband
who wrote beautiful vows.
He had a whole book of them.
Fred picked out a perfect one,
no obey crap, or sickness and health crap,
Vermonter type vows.
I had bruises where the doctor missed both
Long sleeves were the look of the day.
It was one of the last time I wore panty hose.
We got up for the 8 am ceremony,
(we had work to do)
and it was pouring rain,
We left the kids 11 & 14
(for the record, today i finally corrected their ages after some thought
and reminders fr Janet-thanks : >)watching TV,
this would not take long.
The JP's dog was a big yellow dog.
He jumped up on me and
I wondered why panty hose were ever invented.
We had no witnesses save the JP and his wife the town clerk.
They took a polaroid
We went to the dump twice that day.
I found a washer and dryer
and told Fred that one of them had to work,
someone bought a pair and must have thrown out both.
They never break down at the same time.
It took me a long time to convince him of my theory.
We took one home in my Plymouth Horizon
and went back the second time to get the other one.
Fred got them running with a 14 dollar cord
and wired them up.
No more laundromat.
It was a memorable day.
So 3's have been showing up all day.
A truck rumbled by at 3:33 am
as I read my clock.
(In the PM I also saw 3:33)
I explained to Fred the significance of the number 3
as relates to a 27th anniversary.
3 x 9 =27
3 Cubed =27
the numbers 27 added together:
2+7 = 9 or 3 x 3
I arrived 30 years ago.
3 is a very significant number.
Fred wasn't sure of the significance but was sure about supper.
