A Decade of Destiny,Devotion and Decadence

Our oldest picture together, March 18, 2000 - Andrea's 26th birthday, still "just friends"...?

Today is the 10th anniversary of Andrea and I meeting. On October 11th, 1999 I was assigned to interview this new prospective Production Coordinator at the company we both used to work at. That morning, through the fog of my life, this dark, so cool, one-of-a-kind alternative to the alternative chick walked in, and little could I have known (or did I?) that this was the most important day of my life. That very moment I was meeting the woman that would come to mean so much to me, and to give me through her love the power and ability to do anything my black black heart would desire.

Andrea has allowed me over the years to be the darkest, baddest, down-right dangerous to know motherfucker; and been my partner in love-crime right through me becoming the brightest, lovingest and awesomest Daddy my son could dream of having. That is the magic of having the right partner in the world, they are the key to the lock you were born with - it was all destined to be, all the stars aligning, the right hearts broken, all the right roads taken or forsaken, leading right up to a meeting that would forever change history, and make you the person you were meant to be.

I get a little stoney thinking about it today: what if some Genie-devil would have appeared to Andrea and I, on this fateful morning in 1999 in that interview office, and told us that in 10 years we would be married, living in Mexico in a house we built, and have a one year old son? What would those kids say to that craziness? Today I can only say that it was meant to be, and that if that reality diverged, we would have ended together in another way. I know this, I feel this, and I love this. Andrea is my one and only true love, and we are meant to be here today, together, and nothing could or will ever change that.

As I turn 40 this week, I know that I am where I should be in life, and most importantly, with who I am supposed to be with, forever. I can't wait for the rest of my life.

"First day of my Life"

This is the first day of my life

Swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain, suddenly everything changed
They're spreading blankets on the beach
Yours is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
Now I don't know where I am, don't know where I've been
But I know where I want to go

And so I thought I'd let you know
That these things take forever, I especially am slow
But I realized that I need you
And I wondered if I could come home

Remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning
And I thought it was strange, you said everything changed
You felt as if you'd just woke up

And you said, "This is the first day of my life.
I'm glad I didn't die before I met you.
But, now I don't care, I could go anywhere with you
And I'd probably be happy."

So if you wanna be with me
With these things there's no telling
We'll just have to wait and see
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery

Besides, maybe this time it's different
I mean I really think you like me
