“Marriage takes work, otherwise you’re home together all day.”
Meghan and I got married 14 years ago today. As I was making this collage, I came across this silly tagline from a cognac ad in a magazine. It seemed like the perfect fit.
After all these years, we’re still a team. A unified front.
I often think of Leo and Diane Dillon, the illustrator couple who collaborated on covers and picture books:
After sufficient back-and-forth, and sufficient spirited argument, the resulting image appeared, they often said, to have been the work of an unseen but very much present third party, whom they called “It.”
1 + 1 = 3. A third party. A whole bigger than our parts.
Me at 20.
Girl in the photo was 21 and bought me beer.
