By birth every man and every woman enters into an arrangement with the universe. We get our existence and, in exchange we produce something the universe cannot make itself – we create memories. You may think the universe gets the better of the deal since it gets all that I am in my memories and can enjoy them forever, while my own existence is fleeting. But somewhere during my time with you I have become convinced that I am the lucky one, for my brief moment in the cosmos alongside you is more valuable than infinity.
Whether it is a supernova or you, my love, the most spectacular parts of the universe have always defied eternity. By that light it’s fitting that our time will be so brief (on a galactic scale). It would be the only way to do justice to memories such as ours.
I’m married. 😀
