I realize it has been many moons since my previous letter. The time between letters must be related to living such a full and happy life. Of course, THIS life would not be possible if it were not for your infinite wisdom to ensure Michelle and I met. To this day, I am filled with gratitude for our meeting. We have built a wonderous relationship founded on kindness and love. We have shown immense strength in our togetherness through life’s challenges. Together, we can and do accomplish great things. I am immensely proud of the life and home we have built together. Did I mention that Michelle and I share a love of the moon? We have spent many of nights gazing at the moon together. A favorite memory …. we were floating on rafts together under a full moon during our first visit to Jamaica. That, among many other memories brings joy to my soul.
She is a beautiful and passionate woman who unleashes the animal in me. We enjoy spending lots of time together no matter what we are doing. She is the kindest person I know and always sees the good in people. I could not be happier being her husband. She enables me to follow my dreams and is always there when I need her.
I wrote a very inspired poem and left it for her to read on the plane.

Of course, time does not exist without space. I love our space and what it means to be in it with you. We have created such a beautiful space around us for all to see. Our space is full of passion, friendship, joy and peace.
I look forward to every new second I get to spend with you, my true love. I know that we have so much adventure ahead of us and beyond.
Being your lover is such a joy. A joy that renewed my belief in love itself. As we journey from amazing moment to moment, I rediscover just how very fortunate I am to have met you.
I am very excited to be along for the ride on the journey into your second half of life. You have been such a positive addition to my life. I love spending time with you no matter what we are doing.
Much time has passed since my last letter (lol, again…). Not that I believe you keep a score on that. In fact, I’m not sure I believed you existed. I definitely believed that putting positive energy out there can create a positive effect in my life. For some time I had been open to alternate views of how the Universe connects us all to each other. I really enjoyed learning about them. One day I got a fortune cookie that read “If you can shape it in your mind, you will find it in your life”. I just loved the idea of it and it seemed so simple. I had already been spending a lot of time really thinking about what kind of person I wanted in my life. I imagined she would be loving and kind. I even imagined she would except me regardless of my past mistakes. The crazy thing is that it all came true when I met Michelle. This amazing woman became my love, my life, my home. I now have a deep respect for the power of the Universe in our lives. She is everything I imagined and so much more. We literally enjoy every aspect of life together. She has a genuine big heart and cares so much for all the people in the world. Those who know her, come to know her inner peace. I can’t help but just be grateful she is in my life. I am a very lucky man indeed.
