Our sincerest condolences and thoughts to Robert Wyatt’s loved ones, friends and colleagues. Robert passed away suddenly on January 14, 2017. He was an incredible photographer that shot extraordinary photos. Here are a few amazing photos from his CRASH Magazine photoshoot (Dec 2008) he took of Michael Fassbender. We will be forever grateful. May you rest in peace Robert.
„My dearest Calliope”,
Arizona began, taking the other woman’s hands in her own and stared
into beautiful, gorgeous brown eyes that shimmered in the sunlight
streaming down upon them. “Had you told me that we would ever be
standing here again, I would have laughed at you. Despite the truth
that I never stopped loving you, despite my promise to myself that I
would never lose hope, it had lost all of it when I watched you move
to New York.” Gentle thumbs stroked over the back of tan hands as
the blonde continued. “I didn’t know you would come back. I had no
idea that a year ago today, you would show up at my door and told me
you made a mistake when you left. When you told me you still loved
me, I thought it was a dream and my heart soared in my chest. I made
a lot of mistakes, I’m not a kid anymore. But letting you go to find
your way back to me, was fate.” She took her lover’s hand and
placed it over her chest. “Can you feel the rapid thudding? It’s
all for you, Calliope. All of this, every beat in there, every breath
of air in my lungs, it’s for you and for our little miracle.” Two
pairs of eyes glanced at their daughter, wearing a pretty summer
dress and a big smile. “I love you, Calliope, and this time, I
won’t mess it up. This time, we really have the chance to be
Tears brimmed chocolaty
eyes as she looked into the deepest pool of blues she had ever seen.
And although those eyes and the woman they belonged to were so
familiar, the brunette thought she discovered something new in them
every day. “My dearest Arizona”, she started after clearing her
throat. “I will never understand how we are standing here today. So
much has happened, so many things have gone wrong in the past. We may
not be perfect now, we will probably never be perfect. But our
imperfections make us who we are and in a magical way, they fit
perfectly together.” Pausing for a moment, Callie once again looked
at their daughter, who needed, encouraging the older Latina. “I can
still remember the day I realized that what I feel for you is love in
the purest and most consuming way at the same time. And had I not
come back, I would have wondered for the rest of my life how
extraordinary we could have truly been, as wives and as a family.”
She still held on to her soon-to-be-wife’s hands. “I promise to
fight for us, for what we have. I love you, Arizona.”
Close to tears herself,
the blonde slipped the new wedding ring onto her wife’s finger before
Callie did the same. Being married to the mother of her child felt as
right as it had always felt. And the matching smiles all three wore
told her that agreeing to a second try at marriage with Calliope
Torres, was the best decision she had ever made. “I love you,
younger Torres exclaimed, jumped up from her seat and clapped her
hands loudly. The other wedding guests soon joint in as Callie and
Arizona made their way back down the aisle of flowers and grass, their hands holding on to
each other’s, their fingers intertwined until they welcomed their daughter in their middle.
This time, they wouldn’t
let go. This time, they would face every storm together, whether it
was a simple thunderstorm or a hurricane. This time, they were ready
for their extraordinary future together.
