An Ode

My parents have been together for 30 years. An applaudable feat in anyone's eyes, yes. The miracle that they have stayed together so long is that they are complete opposites. While mom is loud, dad is quiet. While dad is conservative, mom is too with a wild streak. I talk about sex freely with her, and talk politics with him. My mom is a bit of a nut, a very fun nut, mind you, but a nut none the less. Sometimes I think dad is just along for her crazy, wild ride, smiling in his way the entire time. You can't raise a writer, an artist and B (we don't know what she is yet)without a little bit of crazy in you.

They have always supported our endeavors, offered advice and money when they could and love always. They are great people.
