sorry i've been such a slack-bot on this thing. there's so much going on. thought i'd try to catch up a bit as i'm here in columbus. i'm home now for nicole - my great friend from high school. it's her wedding day.

nicole is marrying a kind man named mike. mike, among other things, is a fiddle player who composed music for an independent movie nicole wrote and directed. come on. COME ON! they are kind and smart and eccentric and all things good to each other. they have had a trying year, currently living their lives and finding a new place in the world here after losing much during hurricane katrina.

since 14, my favorite poet has been e.e. cummings. there is no one, to me, that even comes close.

their wedding invite is one of my favorites of all time. the front is a map of the us in light blue, with a small wax heart stamped over new orleans. at the top, it reads the following:

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

i hope i marry someone that wants to put e.e. cummings on our invitation.

Is "put e.e. cummings on the invitation" a euphemism?

Or you could marry someone who had NO preference to what poem you put on your wedding invitation- and then you would have E.E Cummings anyway!
