It was Destiny
Searching for the definition of Destiny – the ultimate agency that predetermines the course of events (often personified as a woman); “we are helpless in the face of Destiny”, it struck again perfectly when Merriam-Webster gave the word of the day as soul mate – 1 : a person who is perfectly suited to another in temperament 2 : a person who strongly resembles another in attitudes or beliefs.
On June 6, 2013 boarding Delta flight 1420 from LAX I walked to my seat 15B and sat beside the woman who is now my fiancé and soul mate. That flight changed my life, Anju is beautiful, smart, compassionate, deep, fun, sharing, caring, wonderful, vibrant, she is perfect.
This is the first photo that I took of Anju as she drove me back to JFK on June 8.
That’s all it took, I asked Anju if she’d like me to move to New York, and soon after I had an apartment at Columbus Square.
