Old Friends: Our 24th Anniversary

A photo of My Partner Jaime and I reflected on a sunny San Francisco Day in the window of a passing tour bus
My Partner, Jaime and I, reflected in the window of a passing tour bus. When I showed him this shot and asked him what he was thinking, he replied, “There he goes with that camera again.”

I met Jaime 24 years ago this week.

Yes, it was love at first sight and I know that sounds trite, but if it has ever
or will ever happen to then you will understand how profound it is.

We moved in together two months later and we have been together ever since.

He’s seen me through the darkest days of my illness; and I wept and grieved
with him when his Father sickened with cancer and died.

He is a proud Nicaraguan man and a proud citizen of the United States.

He is among my oldest and most trusted friends.

He is my partner and he is my joy.

Happy Anniversary, Jaime.

Happy Anniversary mi amore.
