the marriaging of a friend
Busride to the fringe of the city. Winery – ceremony outside. Sweltering heat. Heat-magnifying suit. Liquid refreshment.
The friends of a friend this good are friends of mine. Discuss: Ellroy, “intelligent techno,” Meyer, and marriage, or course. Bike rides. Big Lebowski. Canada as China. Indie rock. & what have you been doing for the last eight years?
Non-religious ceremony, under a tree. Groom making wisecracks throughout. Never seen him happier, and it was so right: it was their day, they were in their element. Bride and groom, glowing. Palpable energy goes right to my sap-zone. Misting up like an old maid. This phenomenon reaches its apotheosis during the ceremonial bride/groom dance, played out to Weezer, under the stars.
Congratulations, Mark & Ange.
