I'm all moist...erm, well, maybe I should just say I'm all misty-eyed. What's happening to me -- the exasperated cynic who frowned upon public expressions of love? I'm being "corrupted" by the forums. And Eric, I really ought to report you to the moderators... for being one of the sweetest, sanest people I've encountered here.

Her finely-touched spirit had still its fine issues, though they were not widely visible. Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.

My heart is very moved from what you have said to me and William..  I feel very fortunate to have friends such as you.  I have only been around a very short time in the scheme of HIV but I feel like a part of this family even more so now..  There have been so many ups and downs this past year, but our love for eachother has only grown and compounded itself.  I know the isolation of living where we do makes it difficult to be amongst others like us, but this family has helped ease that feeling of loneliness.   We have celebrated birthdays, we have concured obstacles and we have proven love wins over fear everytime.  We have seen desperation, we have seen acts of kindness.  What better place for me to tell you of our anniversary and hopes for all of our better futures...  Today, my heart sings, but tomorrow, it may not.  But for now,  I am truly happy.... :)

Love you GUYS!

Eric and Will,

Happy anniversary! Eric, you are probably the sweetest person I know. The fact you are also an absolute lunatic (anyone who lives where it snows as much as it does in your back yard would have to be) makes you even dearer to me. Ordinary people are so boring!  ;D

I am very happy for you both and wish you many, many more years together.
