Tilling the land, and love

Dave and Corrinne of Iowa (Joey Kulkin photo)

BENNINGTON -- These are the old and weathered and leathered and wrinkled and crinkled and beaten and swollen and diseased and crooked-knuckled hands of land-tilling Iowa man and woman who have been married for 63 years. 

Their son went to Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff and that's when his mom and dad took interest in Arizona Indians. Their matching wedding bands pay homage to the Hopi.

Wrote a vignette on them today and asked the usual question.

"We have a lot in common," Dave says. "We love art, travel, and classical music."

"Yes," Corrinne echoes, "we have a lot in common."

These are the things that bring me joy.
