It was a good wedding. I might have even mustered a tear….or maybe a bird peed in my eye….hard to say…the wedding ceremony was held outdoors. There were birds in the sky.
Perfect day. Lovely garden setting. Bride was beautiful, groom handsome, best man funny, speeches all generally short and the food was great. Everyone dancing including some octogenarians. And the place was alive with hob-nobbing from the get-go.
Our family is now just that much larger. And not just a few of them are as eccentric and weird as the ones they are joining. Quite a bunch of whackos all told. More than a few times I contemplated the wisdom of living off the grid last night. It was truly an inspired decision.
Mind you, metaphorically speaking, there were not just a few ‘off-the-gridders’ in attendance as well at the wedding regardless of where they lived.
It has been a year of weddings for our children. Emily and Brian last November and Ben and Katie yesterday. Thank God we only had two kids!
But I won’t bore you with wedding stuff. It’s the stuff of stuff. But I will say that there was a lot of love in the room last night. Chocolate love and strawberries was the least of it. It was pretty neat. Nice way of passing the torch…………..and that is what it felt like. Something changed during their ceremony……….and I could feel the torch leaving my hand.
