it's wedding season i guess. it is a beautiful and miraculous thing to see friends join their lives. and i felt blessed to witness these two weddings (one in vancouver and the other in warrenton, virginia), see old friends and recieve hospitality. we drank wine, we danced, we drank some more wine, ate and talked and laughed and heard each others' stories, just like the old days. good for my soul. and i suspect good for theirs also. it was heartening to hear of how people are seeking to live in real and meaningful ways, even in the midst of difficulty and how we miss each other like heck. when's the next big party, friends?
