Champagne and Cake

Today we are going to a wedding at the National Cathedral, for two friends who were in our wedding almost fifteen years ago. There is so much I could say about this, but I won't.


Suffice it to say that these are two people who befriended me at a rough time in my life and who were, in a sense, midwives to the relationship which became my marriage and present family. They stood by me. And us.


This week I heard the Baltimore Men's Chorus sing these words, written by Thoreau. In lieu of explanations, recollections, or wishes I share them in honor of Gerry and Travis.

Two sturdy oaks I mean, which side by side,

Withstand the winter's storm,

And spite of wind and tide,

Grow up the meadow's pride,

For both are strong

Above they barely touch, but undermined

Down to their deepest source,

Admiring you shall find

Their roots are intertwined
