I've been having a hard time dealing with the news lately. I don't know
what it is, exactly, but the sheer volume of bad-news stories has really
started to get to me. So I'm largely in avoidance mode -- I'm trying
not to follow the news too closely, and I'm certainly not up to blogging
about any of it.

Here, though, is a happy
little good-news story
that has brightened my day. I always get a
little mushy over older couples who've been together for years and years
and years. And that they get to be properly partnered and acknowledged
as their "real" selves after a lifetime just makes me sniffle. In a
happy way.
It's not enough to balance out the bad-news stories, but every little
bit does help.
