Our 17th wedding anniversary

This poem describes how I feel about David and his “quiet eyes” after 17 years of marriage:

Who Loves the Rain
– Frances Shaw

Who loves the rain
And loves his home,
And looks on life with quiet eyes,
Him will I follow through the storm;
And at his hearth-fire keep me warm,
Nor hell nor heaven shall that soul surprise,
Who loves his home,
And looks on life with quiet eyes.

About David and Lam

A smitten couple and loving parents in our early 40s. We have lived in 3 different countries together. We dream of living in a fourth country together after our children grow up. We love long walks in the woods, climbing mountains, boating, traveling, reading, and being together. Both David and Lam are old souls who love quietness and meaningful conversations in which we ponder the truth and mysteries of life as well as discuss philosophical and ethical matters. We especially like to enjoy the small pleasures of daily life.
