Today is our 11th wedding anniversary (or the steel anniversary, for those who like made-up things). It's cliche to say, of course, but we seem as young and new as we once were.
More important, I think our marriage thus far has been transcendental in the old, Kantian, sense, which is to say necessary for the actual to be possible. To be a little less fancy: To be just the way we are now in this place, with Q & The Boy made as they are, would not be possible without that Friday night eleven years ago.
Congratulations to us, then, for what we have made and what has made us.
And just listen—they're playing our song:
Nina Simone, "My Baby Just Cares for Me"
