25 Years

Participated in a beautiful ceremony at the Empty Hand Zen Center last weekend to commemorate 25 years of marriage. Photo above shows the original clay figure that was on top of our wedding cake, and a snapshot from the wedding in Jenaro Herrera, Peru (see Jenaro Herrera) on November 22, 1986 featuring (r-l) Christine Padoch (maid of honor), Elysa (bride), me (groom), Miguel Pinedo-Vasquez (best man), and Oscar Paredes (alcalde of Jenaro Herrera). The title of the book, The Wheel of Life, visible to the right on the book shelf, pretty much says it all (thx, Elysa).
