Five. It’s a number I have been thinking a lot about lately. As Donald in Mathmagic Land explains, the five-sided pentagram is a special figure, full of perfection. In radio communication, the term “five by five” is used to indicate perfect signal strength and clarity. The “perfect fifth” in music denotes the most consonant, stable harmony. And I can say that these first five years of our marriage have been the same: perfect, stable and harmonious.
The emotions I feel for Roger are the same now as when we first met. I’m still delighted each time he smiles and feel security in his simple touch. Five fingers interlaced with his makes for a good walk.
This year number five we will celebrate for three days (three is another great number, especially for our three-year old). In the plans are time spent doing some of our favorite things with some of our favorite people at some of our favorite places. This weekend will find us camping in the Anza Borrego desert, breakfast with family, going to see music (Steve Poltz/The Rugburns with Bob Schneider at the Belly Up) and gathering friends together at the Casbah for our anniversary show (featuring Get Back Loretta, Wendy Bailey & True Stories, Vanja James and Listening to Rocks).
