Commitment

Today, continuing my part-time role as Wedding Date, I saw a beautiful "wedding". I have to put it in quotes, because there it involved more than the usual number of grooms and fewer than the usual number of brides. It was still a lovely commitment ceremony, and it made me happy to be able to be there.

The part that made my eyes tear up a little bit was one of the vows. He said (approximately something like), "My parents just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. My father refused to renew his vows, because he said, 'they haven't changed; are still just as true as the day we were married'. I look forward to saying the same to you in 50 years."

While card-shopping prior, I found a really pretty card that I bought. Not for the Happy Couple, though their card was also beautiful. I bought it for myself, it has calligraphy and a reproduction of a watercolor flower, and I intend to use it as art. That's some card, that it makes me want to frame it instead of sending it, eh? But it moved me in its simplicity, in a quiet way I can't quite explain.

I get up.
I walk.
I fall
down.

Meanwhile,
I keep
Dancing.

It was really cool getting to see B, even if his feet hurt him. And it was cool as always to spend time with F. A really good day.
