13 years ago today we stepped on this trolley as husband and wife. Today it's a different story.
I came up with a little sketch and scenario about this trolley and I will stick to it until the day I die... It's a little too personal or I would post it on here - maybe one day I will.
Anyway, you can ask anyone that was involved or invited to celebrate on that November day that it was pretty memorable - there were enough cookies to feed a small village for a year or two... There were angels and mickeys all around...
There was a 21 piece big band...
... and a quick change to get into something a little more comfortable...
... and getting back to the trolley - there was "pure love."
A friend posted part of this the other day on facebook... I thought I would put the entire thing on here now...
"Then Almitra spoke again and said, "And what of Marriage, master?
And he answered saying:
You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore.
You shall be together when white wings of death scatter your days.
Aye, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of heavens dance between you.
Love one another but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your soul.
Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.
Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together, yet not too near together;
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow."
~ Kahlil Gibrab (The Prophet)
