When I started writing here I told myself that this would be a work-only blog. If I wanted to write anything personal, I thought, I would do it in another blog, and not under a pseudonym. In that regard, I've been about as successful as the Chicago Cubs at the World Series. But some things are as important in the history of this project as any technical detail, and this record would be less of one for not having included them.

So fast-forwarding for a moment to the present, today in real life marks the sixth anniversary of my marriage to Antonia, a beautiful woman that I don't deserve to have. Five other anniversaries have come and gone, and I wonder what compels me to write this on our sixth.

What compels me is that I love her.

When I was a child, I would ask my parents how they knew that they had found "the right one." I'm not sure why I wondered about those things, but I did. The unsatisfactory answer that I always received was that "they just knew." Unhappy with their response, I would usually ponder it for a few seconds, then go play with my Legos.

It wasn't until I met Antonia I understood what they meant. I didn't understand it right away, but when the time came that I was free of any logical or emotional reasons why I should choose to spend the rest of my life with her—and there were many—I came to the place where I just knew. She was pretty, she was a lady, she was smart and she was the cutest thing in the world. But apart from that, I knew that I needed to spend the rest of my life with this woman.

Of all the choices that I've made, very few have been choices that set my life's course. It's comforting to know that the important decisions have been accompanied by the calm confidence of knowing that it they were the right decisions.

Antonia, you are not only the best thing that has ever happened in my life, you are the best thing that will ever happen in my life. I sometimes think that if you hadn't come across me, you would've been just fine. But if I hadn't found you, I would still be lost—a ship without a course, or a rudder to steer by even if it had one.

I'm glad to have found you, glad to see where we're headed, glad that our anchors are weighed and our course is set. There's no one I'd rather sail this voyage with but you, and nowhere I'd rather go than where you are.

Forever your love,

Well, I haven't checked your blog in a few days and it looks like an 'Ode to Antonia. Thank you. These past six years have been lots of fun....Thank you for that too. I'm looking forward to the next chapters of our life as well. Fun times ahead! I love you.

Get back to technical stuff...People are gagging and rolling their eyes right now!! ;-)
