Dean and I had a great time at the wedding. Lynn and Sam are a gorgeous couple: and they are both such caring and good-hearted and loving people. What a party! Cocktails and dinner and dancing into the late night. Woo-hoo! I was especially touched that Lynn's parents took the time to seek Dean and I out and thank us for being part of Lynn's life. That was so sweet.
One of the best parts of the wedding was the reading of Raymond Carver's "Late Fragment" by a friend of Sam and Lynn's. I just love this little poem, and that they included this and other poems in the ceremony:
And did you get what
you wanted from this life, even so?
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved, to feel myself
beloved on the earth.
