Discovery

When our wedding anniversary rolled around this year, on March 9, Connie-Lynne had to be out of town on business. We planned then to have "our anniversary, observed" shortly thereafter. Since I had the day off yesterday (the stock market is closed on Good Friday) we decided to do it then.

One thing I had thought to do was "go see something beautiful together." Connie-Lynne suggested going back to the park where we were married, Brand Park in Glendale. I had had that notion too, so we went with that. When we got there, we couldn't get in to the actual area where our ceremony happened, because it's fenced off and the gates were locked.

We had wanted to stop by a library, though, and Mr. Brand's old mansion in the park ("El Mirador") is now a branch of the Glendale public library. It turns out to specialize in art and music books, and has an attached art gallery. We decided to look around, and there was this great exhibit there that appealed to us both, and yesterday was the last day it was going to be showing. Stumbling on it was totally serendipitous and exactly what we wanted. It was a great part of a great day together.
