Tomorrow will have been our 40th wedding anniversary. We were married in the garden at Blithewood, the Zabriskie estate, on the Hudson River at Bard College. It is now the Jerome Levy Institute for Economics of the College and is returned to its past glory. For us it was the keystone of a long but tempestuous marriage. Each year until we came to Mexico we returned to the garden. It will be a sad day for me and one full of memories of better times before slipping away from civilization into the primitive life of the Yucatan jungle.
