A Moment in Time
The year is 1962. The place is Belfast, Northern Ireland. The occasion is the wedding of Sam McCready and Joan Carslake. This picture captures the joy and excitement of that moment in time.
Sam and Joan are known today not only in Belfast but in many countries around the world. Beyond their long careers as teachers they have lived just as fully as actors, writers, directors, artists. They continue to travel and perform.
I haven't come to know them because of their performing, though. My story became a part of their story when I married their son. We've been married since 1999, so we have a ways to go to catch up.
Today I want to wish these two amazing, welcoming, and loving people a very Happy Anniversary and say thank you for giving me the greatest gift of my life. Your wedding led to my wedding, and your joy to mine.
