the marriage skin

Monday, January 22, 2007
regarding marriage.
ahhhh, marriage.
love it ... hate it.
its quite the institution, though.
i suppose some view it
as a legal arrangement.
others, as a meal ticket.
and others still, as a ticket
to owning another.
but i see it more as
a type of skin that insulates one from
... solitude and other entities
that i cannot name at this time.

i use the word skin on purpose.
think of what your skin does.
it holds everything together -
insulates it from the elements.
provides a barrier.
and marriage becomes this
for married people.

- this is a thought i had in an email. it seemed good enough to share -
