|In step: Bill and Geo find their groove after 40 years.|
She welcomed the occasional letter over the years, but that was the extent of their contact. Both left their marriages and navigated new relationships. Georgie had a steady partnership spanning nearly 22 years.
Winds shifted. Embers got sufficient air to fan the flame once more. She found him via social media and they exchanged pleasantries. In June, they met face to face for the first time in several decades. Time stopped. And then it began again.
This week, news arrived that they will exchange wedding vows in late summer at Windfield Farm, home to our dear aunt and uncle; home to Georgie, and soon, home to Bill. We are over the moon with joy!
What can be said about love? How does the passage of time change us, strengthen us, and open our hearts to what resides there? I can live with the mystery; I can live with the miracle. And, so it seems, can they.
