Big Day Today

Today is our 25th Anniversary.

She made me a wonderful card.

Neither picture fully captures its splendour, sadly. But in the real world and in the daylight …

It was also she who introduced me to Laura Marling.

I did think, briefly, about a poem, but it would be beyond me, I fear, to convey the whole of what I would want to express. And besides, Calliope is nearly as insecure as I am; or is it the other way round?

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

    • Thank you, Betty. I told her you admired the card. She has always been a great artist, with a whole range of techniques and media, from fine jewellery and bead work to large projects, such as building her own work bench.


  2. Congratulations! Beautiful card and beautiful thoughts to you both πŸ™‚

  4. Happy Anniversary, Ben and Mrs Ben! Wow, 25 years is a l-o-o-o-n-g time – Well done. I have just done a poem for my sister and her husband who have their 40th anniversary coming up. Will post it after the ‘due date’ whenever that is – not sure, haha!
