To my dearest Sonia
We’ve had our own 1,000 and 1 nights of marriage – more or less. Three years already! I still discover things about you I love each day, or rediscover: your constancy, your generosity, your sense of justice. I count myself a lucky man to have found you, and I hope it lasts as many years as we can count.
I love you,
