10 Years and more in love than ever

10 years ago we were met by our cousin Lizzie and a few friends at city hall where my bride, Metta and I were married.  We had a nice lunch, Metta went to work and I ran the first Big Apple Roll, an in-line skating event kicking off that day where 100’s of people from the USA and all over the world take to the streets and see NYC on wheels.

Metta was a bartender working in the village.  I still have the voice message she sent me after getting off work,
in a taxi, giggling as she said "this is Mrs. Kaskel" on her way to finally be together since getting married many hours ago.

We were surrounded by many of our dearest friends and after some drinks, it was us, only us. 








Of course Metta proceeded to immediately fall asleep as she hit the bed, after all, she woke up early to get married, worked all day and night and needed to get to work the next day.





My wife has been the greatest teacher of my life, she has been teaching me acceptance, a very difficult lesson for me and I’m still working to improve.  She has made me a better human being and perhaps most importantly, she enables me to become more of who I am. 

These are all very deep and spiritual building blocks that make us who we are and I am forever grateful and blessed for the kindness and harshness she shows as she continues to invest in us.


My wife is more beautiful and attractive to me today than ever and the greatest joy I have is the privilege and honor to be with her all day every day as we are now partners in business as well as partners in marriage.  She makes sickening gestures when I tell her these things, but I swell up with elated emotion when contemplating or reflecting about us and how I feel about her. 


She has been the rock in my life, has helped me through the worst of times and has been an important influence for my children.

Today, September 5, 2013, marks 10 years of good life that I never could have imagined and only could have wished for.

Metta, thank you for being my wife, my joy, my wellbeing, my life and for making me your project and not giving up on me and for saying yes to me and for accepting me the way I am.

I love you - Happy anniversary
