There are some statements that you simply cannot explain away.
No good can come of this, I tell you. None, whatsoever.
Love and marriage
No, not mine. Hush.
Yesterday, two beautiful friends got married in a truly moving and genuine ceremony. I'll state outright that I'm a fan of weddings, when done right, and this was just such a wedding: a celebratory statement of something already in existence to friends and family who share and support the same sentiment. And yes, I cried, but to be fair, the groom started tearing up first and then I was a goner.
I love seeing happiness, I love being a part of that happiness, even if only in a fringe sense and I love bearing witness to it. It's hard to feel much more special than that. I also loved seeing so many people that I love and hearing so much good news and smiling, happy faces.
Though he had no way of knowing, amberglow primed the day at MetaChat by posting this, which I most certainly love. And I hope you do, too.
I also want say a big how-do to urbanwhaleshark who has been reading from London. Hi, uws! waves
