They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself. - Andy Warhol, The Philosophy of Andy Warhol - US artist (1928 - 1987)

My sisters wedding was very nice, simple and elegant. Parts were created by artisans and parts were made at home with love by friends or family. All the things anyone could ask for in a wedding. There were hurried moments, moments of wonder, moments of delight and laughter, moments of tears and joy. This was not simply a wedding, but a family reunion also. It had been 30 years since we all had joined hands. Which is too long, we agree. After talking, laughing and trying to figure out the why's, when's, who's and hows. We found we were all individuals. Some with patners, some not coupled at all. But each of us with lives of our own. We had all turned out ok and had found our own happiness. Each of us surrounded by love and a life created. We happen to be in separated now only by miles. Coincidentally one of us lives on the left coast, one lives in the middle and one on the right coast. Going left to right as we were born.

We are looking forward to not waiting another 30 years or even a year.

I hope all is well in your world. I am happy, it is supposed to be 78 degrees this weekend, and its a 3 day weekend. Dead Presidents day is Monday. Whoo Hoo! Ha.

Take care and smile.

Family is a strange thing, hate-love relationships are common. It's special, since you never really 'break up', unlike with other relations.

I love how your tie matches her dress, the bride I suppose?
