Gathered community. Gathered community knitted together — or more correctly, gathered community knitting itself together around relationship and commitment and family.
What is intimacy? What is family? what is celebration?
These are not daily conversational tidbits in our life… and yet what prepares us?
This wedding was presided over by two judges and a priestess. (sounds like a movie, no?)
Lots of stuff was swirling around the gathering… and we rode the waves. As I told you, I found myself in the catching position… and another new nephew, and another new nephew and another new niece… and zoom…
and on the Sabbath, we all rested. family tradition mimosas for brekkie. (over hotel waffes and birthday cake, goodness gracious, pleeze, may there be protein soon.) civilized coffee in a foo foo hotel. a little writing. a nap coming up.
And more family. wonderful kids who have wonderful kids.
Peace as a jigsaw with lots of little pieces… being slowly fitted together. leisure. no need to hurry. we’ve got most of this day.
Peace be with you. and catch tonight’s Full Flower Moon. I’ve got a date with my pillow.
