Couple Walking On The Beach For Refreshment

Couple Walking On The Beach For Refreshment

We wanted to share this incredible piece that appeared in the Modern Love column of last week’s New York Times. As open minded as we all are — there is something here for everyone to contemplate.

From the bedside of my wife, Clare, I lifted the receiver. “Please hold for the president.” Bill Clinton had heard that Clare, struck by acute leukemia, was fading. She listened and smiled but was too weak to speak.
