The daughter's wedding went beautifully, thank you all for your well wishes. It was a long weekend and isn't over yet. Wish I could sleep but insomnia reigns due to sensory overload. The emotions with their highs and lows. The fatigue which for me is always trumped by nerves. The comedy, the tragedy, the tears of joy, relief, sorrow and basically the entire human experience thrown together and wrapped up into one incredible event.
I can't wait to see the pictures, yet what camera could capture all that was my daughter's wedding. Nor song either, although opera might work in some instances.
And now that it's over, I'm left with an intense desire to write a story. To express my emotions with words like this man does with music.(Result--music combined with story results in 4 minute clip rich in the pathos of human existence, viewed millions of times on You Tube.)
Thought question: Can books move us like music?
