On this day in 1966, my parents were married in Adelaide. That's 40 years ago.

This is a photo I took of them both in Tofino the day my brother got married. I titled it "Proud". People thought that I meant that they were proud of me, when in fact it is I that am proud of them. 40 years together isn't easy. The more I get to know them, the more I realise that.

I am proud of them both, for many things, but mainly for raising me, my sister and my brother with love, guidance and a staunch belief that each of us have the chops to find our own way.

Congratulations, mum and dad.
