A quick trip home
Just this past week I traveled over 16,000 miles. Why, you ask? For the very simple and infinitely worthy reason that I attended my brother’s wedding. My “little” brother Evan (who’s 190 cm and 84 kg) got married last weekend in the rolling hills of southeastern Virginia. It was a perfect weekend. The weather was warm and sunny, the venue was scenic and rustic, and the atmosphere was lively. The ceremony itself was loosely based on native American Indian spirituality and had much to do with connecting the human spirit to nature. My brother and his bride looked stunning. It was a moving experience to watch them come together…I couldn’t help but shed a few tears.
Afterwards, during the reception dinner, I was one of a few people to give a speech. It wasn’t the best speech, but I did manage to make everybody laugh a couple of times. And despite a year of anticipation, the event has already come and gone. Fortunately, I have a sister who has yet to get married. Hopefully she and her partner will tie the know soon!
