Life at an Intersection

Chicago Phoenix, indemnity bonds, journaling, really really really want a zigazig ah, travel, books, travel books, relationships, values. It is hard to pinpoint precisely, but I'd say about 82% of what you read here is true. The rest is fictional nonfiction.

Plan to Marry

Photobucket

Even though it is being overshadowed by bigger news events and won't make anywhere near as much press as the Prop 8 battle in California, something about the gay marriage decision in Iowa feels very real, more personal and exciting for me. A state which is not my state, but is located directly adjacent to my state, and is not located in the very progressive Northeast or the very libertarian left coast but in the very heart of America, has decided that people like me should have equal access to marriage.

Here is a most awesome quote from the unanimous Iowa Supreme Court ruling: "We are firmly convinced the exclusion of gay and lesbian people from the institution of civil marriage does not substantially further any important governmental objective."

Damn straight.

Damn Straight. I was so excited when this happened and hope that the trend will continue. How anyone thinks that gay marriage can be restricted on Constitutional grounds is beyond me.

Words That I'm Living By - 5/2/2010

Time, as I've known it
Doesn't take much time to pass by me
Minutes into days, turn into months
Turn into years, they hurry by me
But still I love to see the sun go down
And the world go around

Dreams full of promises
Hopes for the future, I've had many
Dreams I can't remember now
Hopes that I've forgotten,
faded memories
But still I love to see the sun go down
And the world go around

And I love to see the morning
as it steals across the sky
I love to remember and
I love to wonder why
And I hope that I'm around
so I can be there when I die
When I'm gone

I hope that you will think of me
In moments when you're happy and you're smiling
That the thought will comfort you
On cold and cloudy days
if you are crying
And that you'll love to see
the sun go down
And the world go around
And around and around
