Reprise- Ogden Nash

I cannot say any more than this made my heart smile this morning. Thanks you,  Ogden Nash. Enjoy the journey of your day.

                  ~Reprise~
Geniuses of Countless Nations
Have told their love for generations
Till all their memorable phrases
Are common as goldenrod or daisies.
Their girls have glimmered like the moon,
Or shimmered like a summer moon,
Stood like a lily, fled like a fawn,
Now the sunset, now the dawn,
Here the princess in the tower
There the sweet forbidden flower.
Darling, when I look at you
Every aged phrase is new,
And there are moments when it seems
I’ve married one of Shakespeare’s dreams

Why no images on our blog?  Wedding images come and go with fashion and with the season, so many and so varied. We feel it is the words you share with each other, during your wedding ceremony, that are some of the most significant and intimate words you will ever share, in your life,  and, like gems, are unique and personal.

An Essay about Love and Relationship by Bob Marley

An edited portion of the following essay by Bob Marley was read during one of our wedding ceremonies a few weeks ago. The couple took lines they felt right for themselves and their relationship and crafted a reading for their wedding ceremony which worked perfectly for them. Liking the overall tone and texture of what their reading, we were drawn  to find the original essay. What follows is what we found, which we suspect, is the original essay. We love the sensitive, depth, breath, comfort, care, and images describing a wonderful, warm, caring, healing, healthy, intimate relationship. We hope you enjoy this essay as much as we do.

“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.”

Reading from The Great Gatsby

The weather last Friday was flawless as we gather at the Cliff Walk in Newport, RI not far from the site where the Robert Redford version of the Great Gatsby movie was filmed in the 1970’s. Maria and Chris danced down the aisle to their wedding ceremony. They stood in the center of the circle of their. This was the reading from the Great Gatsby they shared with their community of close family and friends.

“His heart beat faster and faster as Daisy’s white face came up to his own. He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his mind would never romp again like the mind of God. So he waited, listening for a moment longer to the tuning fork that had been struck upon a star. Then he kissed her. At his lips’ touch she blossomed for him like a flower and the incarnation was complete.” (Fitzgerald 117- Chapter 6)

There was not a dry eye in the community of guests gathered to share in their love.We hope you have enjoyed your visit and this has been helpful.

Einstein on Love

Matt and Stephanie are both engineers. They are scientists. They are totally immersed in their work and love each other tremendously. They share the following quote from Albert Einstein which they will be using during their upcoming wedding ceremony. We thought this a wonder and heart warming quote.

Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love.
How on earth can you explain,
in terms of chemistry and physics,
so important a biological phenomenon as first love?
Put your hand on a stove for a minute
and it seems like an hour.
Sit with that special girl for an hour and it seems like a minute.
That’s relativity.

~Albert Einstein

Relationships and Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s Gift From the Sea

This soft, and delicate reflection of Anne Morrow Lindbergh is a beautiful image of relationship. As you deepen, nourish and grow your own particular relationship ask yourselves: are we JOINING
 or are we SEPARATING or ISOLATING? Life is all about relationships. All of life is about relationships. Life is all about coming together joining and growing our hearts, and our lives. Our joining together involves so much: sensitivity, communication, commitment, care, respect, listening, regard, esteem, awareness, desire, presence, love, safety, vulnerability, intimacy, trust,healing, truth. The events of separation and isolation touch into our dark side of secrets, fear, anger, lies, hurt, wounds, power, control,  Questions we feel valuable to keep before us while in our relationship are: Where am I? Where are we? How am I/we willing to grow to join with my partner? What needs nurturing, and watering? What needs to diminish and weeded out? Joining is an ever-growing dynamic. And while these questions are natural and appropriate for our primary relationship, they are also valid questions to ponder while considering my relationships with my family members, my friends, my work and my the various communities to which I belong. As our world experiences so much hurt and so many wounds, we feel these questions are extremely valid  to ponder for national and global relationships: How am I/we joining? How am I/we separating? How am I/we isolating? How am I/we called to grow together? How do we grow and heal together?

Here is Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s reading

“A good relationship has a pattern like a dance and is built on some of the same rules. Partners do not need to hold on tightly, because they move confidently in the same pattern, intricate but gay and swift and free, like a country dance of Mozart. To touch heavily would be to arrest the pattern and freeze the movement, to check the endlessly changing beauty of its unfolding. There is no place here for the possessive clutch, the clinging arm, the heavy hand; only the barest touch in passing. Now arm in arm, now face to face, now back to back – it does not matter which. Because they know they are partners moving to the same rhythm, creating a pattern together, and being invisibly nourished by it.”

From Jane Eyre

We hope those of you in the north are having a great summer and in the south, a mild winter ah, what a world. This sharing, from Jane Eyre, is no other than wonderful! We are so grateful for having been able to hear this reading from Stephanie and Jim last weekend at their celebration of love. Went we first encountered this piece, it left us with a WOW!  We hope you enjoy this reading and your weekend.

 

I have for the first time found what I can truly love–I have found you. You are my sympathy–my better self–my good angel–I am bound to you with a strong attachment. I think you good, gifted, lovely: a fervent, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my centre and spring of life, wrap my existence about you–and, kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one.

~ Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Two Celtic Blessings

These two Celtic Blessings were read during the Memory Celebration of Life Ceremony and funeral of our very dear friend John Walsh. May he rest in peace.

Deep peace of the running wave to you!
Deep peace of the flowing air to you!
Deep peace of the silent stars to you!
Deep peace of the quiet Earth to you!
Deep peace of the God of peace to you!

###

May the raindrops
fall lightly on your brow.
May the soft wind
freshen your spirit.
May the sunshine
brighten your heart.
May the burdens of the day
rest lightly upon you
And may God enfold you
in the mantle of love.
