Time does not change us. It just unfolds us. Max Frisch

Celebrating 19 years of marriage today. Chose to celebrate it in a quiet and relaxed way. We sat and talked for a long long time. The wnet to the garden to plant new seedlings that we had got and trim some of the plants. Evening was a dinner cooked at home with just the us. Nothing dramatic but it was very intimate. I chose the quote by Max Frisch because it fits s in many ways. We have grown so much in past 19 years together but still the core beliefs which got us to be one still remain the same. Things have been elaborated and experienced over the years and that is what I would call unfolding but nothing has really changed. We have matured learnt to look at things in a more empathic ways rather than just sympathetic. It was wonderful doing so together.

The author Max Frisch also fits best because – as stated on his wikipedia page

Max Rudolf Frisch (May 15, 1911 – April 4, 1991) was a Swiss playwright and novelist, regarded as highly representative of German-language literature after World War II. In his creative works Frisch paid particular attention to issues relating to problems of human identity, individuality, responsibility, morality and political commitment. His use of irony is a significant feature of his post-war publications. Frisch was one of the 22 founder members of the Gruppe Olten. He was awarded the Neustadt International Prize for Literature in 1986.

Marriage is indeed about human identity, individuality, responsibility and morality. With this thought we enter into our 20th year of marriage
