Two of my favorite people in the world married each other last night in Philadelphia.
The occasion brought together a collection of loved ones from different points in life. We met on the dance floor in sweaty, joyous circles. Time had passed but for a few hours, none at all.
A few times, I nipped up to my room for extra glucose tablets, and to check my blood sugar. I didn’t eat the cake. I switched to water after a glass of whiskey.
One of the best parts was replaying it all today. The couple’s vows to each other, and the warmth of reconnecting to love I’d never lost. Reopening to friends I hadn’t seen.
It looks a little different now, than when it all began. It is a little different now, than when it started. But the essence remains the same.
