  • I took this photo at the start of our relationship. Four years later, it's still one of my favorite photos.

    He and I sat on the lawn on campus. He was showing me how to use his DSLR. I played. I took a picture of a shoe, the grass, and then, his eye. He liked this photo, so he took a similar picture of my eye. Greenish blue meets brown.

    We still see each other with open, loving, smiling eyes. For that, I'm grateful.
