The Wedding

It’s Monday morning and I’m in the basement sitting at a small desk staring at my computer and pink insulation. Sonja and I have been living with lots of family at my brother Tyler’s house in a small suburb of London Ontario. I’ve spent the last 6 days traveling from Nelson, standing at Tyler’s wedding, meeting long-missed relatives, and swimming in the hotel pool.

The wedding was beautiful in all the traditional ways — the elegant bride, the dramatic church, the loving parents and precocious children — and it had it’s share of drama, but really only in potential, as everything was held together by a fundamental decency and sense of love. There were a awkward moments, and I was responsible for more than my share, but I think in the end, it was just, fun.

1 week later: I don’t have any photos to share right now other then this one of Sonja and I riding a stretch limo from the airport in Toronto to her parent’s place in North York (we had actually ridden it all the way from London with Tyler and Tammy).

One thought on “The Wedding”

  1. Hi Rik, Sonja:

    Nice to here that all is well. What an experience you have had in the last week. (another adventure of life) Sometimes being in stressful situations and living in cramped quarters makes us think of all the unfortuneate people out there with nothing. Also some of the most creative moments come when in touch with the emotions in the moment.

    Live Love & Laugh

    Sam
