Out in America

Thai Pavilion at Olbrich Gardens

Just popping in from my summer exploits (which include working, interning and taking the GRE)* to comment on a show I recently watched on PBS, Out in America. My mind has been on long term relationships and how they stand the test of time. These are a few notable quotes from the show.

"I'm kind of the culinary Jew in the house, and if she is willing to clean up the oil that I use that ends up all over the stove and not complain about it, then I don't know what love is. I also like to quilt, and when I hear a cry of pain from the other room because she's stepped on a needle that I dropped, and she doesn't say anything, then I don't know what love is."

"We've been together for the better part of 40 years, and to say that we still like each other is a significant accomplishment."

*gah. The GRE. At least I don't have to think about it until next Wednesday.

Jess, my mind is often on long term relationships and how they stand the test of time. So far I'm still trying to figure it out. I have yet to see this show but I have to agree it does look promising!So different from anything I'm used to! :)

love is an amazing bond, and those that stand the biggest test which is the long term, always bring a smile to my face and hope to my heart.
