Relief

Thursday, November 12th, 2009

“It was a hard summer in a lot of ways, but we focused on the joy for a day. The only tears shed during the day were by my sister during her awesome speech, who claims that she’s “allergic to microphones” (she did the same at her wedding). No happy tears even, as far as I saw — we were all just laughing, like we were finally relieved.”

Not to be melodramatic, though I occasionally have a flair for that, but this makes me feel a bit better.

There will be tears though, but the good kind :)

Balloons!

Sunday, November 1st, 2009

I’m a firm believer in balloons. They’re cheery, colorful, and just plan happy.

And recently, they have become popular in weddings. I’m actually thinking it has a lot to do with an issue of Martha Stewart Weddings (which I own). No matter the reason, I think it’s fun.

I’m not sure where I found this. If you know, or are the owner, please let me know so I may credit you.

I have many things to post about. And this will all take place over the weekend. Please be prepared for a lot of reading on Monday. K? Thanks.

For now, I will leave you with this lovely song. I’m trying to convince Chet we should dance to this, as our first dance. It’s pretty.

If I caught the world in a bottle
And everything was still beneath the moon
Without your love would it shine for me?

If I was smart as Aristotle
And understood the rings around the moon
What would it all matter if you love me?

Here in your arms where the world is impossibly still
With a million dreams to fulfill
And a matter of moments until the dancing ends.

Here in your arms when everything seems to be clear
Not a solitary thing would I fear
Except when this moment comes near the dancing’s end.

If I caught the world in an hourglass
Saddled up the moon so we could ride
Until the stars grew dim
Until…

One day you’ll meet a stranger
And all the noise is silenced in the room
You’ll feel that you’re close to some mystery.

In the moonlight when everything’s shadows
You’ll feel as if you’ve known her all your life
The world’s oldest lesson in history.

Here in your arms where the world is impossibly still
With a million dreams to fulfill
And a matter of moments until the dancing ends.

Here in your arms when everything seems to be clear
Not a solitary thing do I fear
Except when this moment comes near the dancing’s end

Oh if I caught the world in an hourglass
Saddled up the moon so we could ride
Until the stars grew dim
Until the time that time stands still
Until…

Please, please, please ignore the terrible video. I really hate music videos made from movie clips. Ugh.

Charles Darwin on Marriage

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

I read somewhere that Charles Darwin’s Reasons to Marry was used in a ceremony. I found that interesting and wanted to find what he had to say on it. Turns out, when he was considering marrying Emma, he formed two columns: a ‘To Marry’ column and a ‘Not to Marry Column’.

Below is what he said.

Under the title “This is the Question,” Darwin wrote in the “Marry” Column:

Children — (if it Please God) — Constant companion, (& friend in old age) who will feel interested in one, — object to be beloved & played with. — —better than a dog anyhow. — Home, & someone to take care of house — Charms of music & female chit-chat. — These things good for one’s health. — Forced to visit & receive relations but terrible loss of time. —

W My God, it is intolerable to think of spending ones whole life, like a neuter bee, working, working, & nothing after all. — No, no won’t do. — Imagine living all one’s day solitarily in smoky dirty London House. — Only picture to yourself a nice soft wife on a sofa with good fire, & books & music perhaps — Compare this vision with the dingy reality of Grt. Marlbro’ St.

… and in the “Not Marry” column:

No children, (no second life), no one to care for one in old age.— What is the use of working ‘in’ without sympathy from near & dear friends—who are near & dear friends to the old, except relatives

Freedom to go where one liked — choice of Society & little of it. — Conversation of clever men at clubs — Not forced to visit relatives, & to bend in every trifle. — to have the expense & anxiety of children — perhaps quarelling — Loss of time. — cannot read in the Evenings — fatness & idleness — Anxiety & responsibility — less money for books &c — if many children forced to gain one’s bread. — (But then it is very bad for ones health to work too much)

Perhaps my wife wont like London; then the sentence is banishment & degradation into indolent, idle fool —

He concluded that he should marry, and wrote:

Marry – Marry – Marry Q.E.D.

I found it fairly interesting. What do you think?
