“Tá mo chroí istigh ionat.” – “My heart is within you.” (Gaelic)
Last weekend, my nephew and his fiancée were married. Their wedding was a wonderful blend of old and new. Ancient ceremonies and self-written vows. Traditional dances and modern songs. A 250-year old inn and videos taken by aerial drones.
Of course, at the center of the weekend was the oldest of emotions – love. Two people publicly committing to love and support each other for the rest of their lives. Family and friends sharing in that special moment.
The ceremony and the happy couple represent more than just a display of love for those in attendance. They represent the power that love can bring to our lives.
“He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.” - Albert Einstein
My favorite time of the day is twilight.
The early morning sun transforming the shadows into colors. Birds chirping reminders that the time for sleep is over. Each moment bringing more activity and interaction into our lives as the dawn becomes day.
Dusk has its own claim on our senses. The purple hues of the setting sun transform the sky into a tapestry. The silent moon and stars begin their patrol through the heavens. The air chills, adding to the romance of the moment.
