The Unrelenting Power of And

Two years ago, Spun and I were wed under this very ampersand in the Olympic Sculpture Park on the north end of Seattle. We loved the idea of Smitten AND Spun (aka Bill & Kim), the waterfront AND park, an intimate AND public setting. The piece we were married on is entitled “Love & Loss”. We were amazed at the reverence of people that passed by, pausing for a moment on their stroll, jog, or bike ride. We loved that little kids paid no mind to us standing on the lower S, instead playing with the water in the O and jumping around on the benches. The trains whipped by, planes flew overhead and Seattle kept humming while we took our vows in front of a handful of amazing souls.

And is a funny word. It’s possessive. It joins. It has the opportunity to make things infinitely better than you could ever imagine. All of these things happened when I anded myself to Kim. We became one entity, a united front of joy, creativity and life. Over the past two years, we have “anded” more friends, art, stories and love to our fold than I would have ever conceived possible when we stood in the sun two years ago.

You and I, my Love. Forever and a day. My heart and yours. oxoxo
