One of our heroes, Albert Einstein, said, "Imagination is more important than knowledge." Being imaginative, we've found, does wonders for a relationship. Routines have less chance of going stale. Often, Teri will introduce new aspects to old routines and I will run with them. She is the instigator. I am the perpetuator. For example, she came up with the 4:44 concept where twice a day, at 4:44 a.m. and 4:44 p.m., we have the opportunity to drop everything, to stop everything, and give each other a hug and a kiss. Or, if we're not together, we can know the other person might be sending us special thoughts at that moment. Such imagination with 4:44 and many other concepts bodes well for the strength of our relationship 10, 20 and even 30 years into the future.
