I am married to an amazing man. He is my 4th husband, but I know I finally got it right. (Yeah, yeah, enough with the Liz Taylor jokes.) I feel like writing about him today because he is away for a while, making a short film he wrote and is directing and producing. Aside from being one of the most intelligent people I have ever known, G is a talented artist, a smart businessman and a truly good soul. He loves to eat and drink, and is both highly discerning and wildly appreciative when it comes to my cooking. He is curious about the world and has traveled practically everywhere, but likes to see things again through my eyes. (To wit, he's taking me to Barcelona in September, where's he's been but I never have.) You've already seen from the photos on this blog what a gifted photographer he is. Check out more of his work, including his award-winning documentary short, here. His compassion, breadth of knowledge, gusto, generosity, courage, tenacity and imagination inspire me every day. Oh, and he has flawless taste in jewelry. Did I mention we met online?

You write so well. This is good. You should do more like this. Actually, it's all very good.

Thanks for sharing so much of your life with your readers. When work gets too intense, going to your blog is like going on a little vacation where I can lose myself in your intriguing observations and mouth watering recipes.

I shudder at the thought of "over-sharing," so I am lucky, indeed, to have such kind and gentle readers.

Beautiful commentary on a wonderful guy we are pleased to know.. You gave us a broader spectrum of his personality than we've previously known. You both are truly special..
