Both of our kids got married recently – Tim to Dede in Palm Springs on May 11
Tim and Deanne on their wedding day with Chicken Noodle and Foxie.
and our daughter in Seattle last month. (She prefers to keep her personal life off the internet).
Here is a poem that captures the feeling:From Blossoms in Rose By Li-Young Lee From blossoms comes this brown paper bag of peaches we bought from the boy at the bend in the road where we turned toward signs painted Peaches. From laden boughs, from hands from sweet fellowship in the bins, comes nectar at the roadside, succulent peaches we devour, dusty skin and all, comes the familiar dust of summer, dust we eat. O to take what we love inside, to carry within us an orchard, to eat not only the skin, but the shade, not only the sugar, but the days, to hold the fruit in our hands, adore it, then bite into the round jubilance of peach. There are days we live as if death were nowhere in the background; from joy To joy to joy, from wing to wing, from blossom to blossom to impossible blossom, to sweet impossible blossom.
