How it went down.

31 Aug

I did manage to find two appropriate readings for the wedding and I read them in front of everyone without passing out. One was an excerpt from Khalil Gibran’s The Prophet and the other was this poem:

Words on Feeling Safe
By George Elliot

Oh the comfort of feeling safe
with a person;
having neither to weigh thoughts,
nor measure words,
but to pour them all out
just as chaff and grain together,
knowing that a faithful hand
will take and sift them,
keeping what is worth keeping
and with a breath of kindness,
blow the rest away.

No death. No broken hearts.

In this picture it’s about to start pouring.


The reception was fueled by cupcakes…


and tequila. (Those are my bony knuckles in the corner.)


And I went home to this face. Just try to look away.
