Today marks the ninth year of marriage to my lovely wife, Vida. And in those nine years, we've gone from having nothing to traveling the world, to living in Santa Barbara, to being better with each other than without. Because of her, I've accomplished things that were only dreams. Only wishful thinking. Because of her, I'm still alive and thriving. Because of her, the world is worth saving and life is worth living and it's because of her that I am a better person. A more significant person. A more whole person.
