Subject: Mark Cohen got married
From: Mark Cohen
Date: 06 Sep 07 - 12:49 AM

I know I'm hardly on the 'Cat these days, but I wanted to let those who would be interested know that on August 19 in Highland Park, Illinois, Jackie Pelavin and I were married in a small family ceremony.

Jackie is a urologist at Kaiser Permanente in Santa Clara, California, which is where I've been working as a developmental pediatrician since July 2005, after 11 years in Hawaii. She's been at Kaiser a few more years than I have--16 more, to be precise. We met at a wine tasting that was sponsored by the Physicians' Satisfaction and Wellness Committee (honest!). It's nice to know that after all the attempted fix-ups and online dating experiments, I finally met the love of my life the old-fashioned way.

We're living in Menlo Park, just north of Palo Alto, and I'm thoroughly enjoying life here. And I love having a wife who's also a friend, partner, confidant, companion...all the things marriage is supposed to be. Those of you who know what I mean...know what I mean.

Since I started my sojourn at Mudcat in the dark days of the end of my first marriage, it's only fitting that I share the good news here. I just now happened to click on a link to an old "What is Mudcat?" thread from 2000, and saw a raft of names of old familiar friends. This is a hell of a place, and you guys kept me alive and sane when I was all alone in the middle of the Pacific. Thanks.


In closing, to keep this a music thread and therefore above the line:

THE SECOND TIME AROUND (Kahn/Van Heusen)

Love is lovelier, the second time around
Just as wonderful, with both feet on the ground
Its that second time you hear your love song sung
Makes you think perhaps that love, like youth, is wasted on the young

Love's more comfortable the second time you fall
Like a friendly home the second time you call
Who can say, what brought us to this miracle weve found

There are those who'd bet
Love comes but once - and yet
I'm oh so glad we met
The second time around


Aloha,
Mark

OUTWARD BOUND

(Tom Paxton)

Outward bound, upon a ship that sails no ocean

Outward bound, it has no crew but me and you

All alone when just a minute ago the shore was filled with people

With people that we knew

So farewell, adieu, so long, vaya con Dios

May they find whatever they are lookin for

Remember when the wine was better than ever before

We could not ask, we could not ask for more

Outward bound upon a journey without ending

Outward bound with uncharted waters beneath our bow

For behind, the green familiar shore is fading into time

And time has left us now

Outward bound, upon a ship with tattered sail

Outward bound upon a crooked lonesome trail

Things we learn, we'll just be satisfied in knowing

And we'll tell it to our kids as a fairy tale

recorded by Tom Paxton

Warmest congratulations to both of you, Mark.

If you two want the best cup of coffee in town, stop by Barefoot Coffee Roasters on Stevens Creek Blvd, near the line to San Jose. Ask for Ariel and tell her you're a friend of mine and you'll get a special heart on your cappucino foam. (Really!)

Try it for a lazy croissant and java Sunday morning!

Thanks for this delightful bouquet of wishes. It's a wedding present I'll treasure...and that's no joke. Jackie was touched, as well. I've told her how much this place has meant to me. Amos, we'll give Barefoot a try. Don, I'm going to miss my 30th med school reunion this month, but I hope we'll be celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. Congratulations to you and Barbara! Giok, thanks for "Outward Bound." It's always been one of my favorite Paxton songs--in fact, just one of my favorite songs. It feels very good to be on the ship at last, after all these years on the shore.

I know I won't be on here as much as I was when I was single (yes, I did notice that this thread had fallen off the edge of the world), but I promise not to be a stranger.

Aloha,
Mark

Hey, Mark--Congratulations and best wishes. i heard you had come to California. We haven't communicated since my son sent my wife and me to Honolulu a few years ago and you couldn't get away from Hilo and we couldn't get off Oahu. I just made a rare appearance here to post about my 75th birthday and saw this thread.

I'm about an hour and a half north of you--El Cerrito, just north of Berkeley. I was in Santa Clara a few years ago for a banjo workshop with Dan Levinson (I don't get around an awful lot).
