The Gems in Old Journals

As I often do when celebrating important milestones, I pried open an old and dusty journal to look back. I found an entry from about twelve years ago that captured a nugget that summarized how I felt when I had found the woman of my dreams.

In honor of twelve great years with her, I share the little gem with you today.

Although I Conquer...

Although I conquer all the earth,

yet for me there is only one city.

In that city there is for me only one house;

And in that house, one room only;

And in that room, a bed.

And one woman sleeps there,

The shining joy and jewel of all my kingdom.

--from the Sanskrit (and Jason's Journal)
