Ceremony

I am attending a lovely wedding this weekend. Lots of hellos, lots of food, lots of little kids running around.

But the main event, of course, is the ceremony. The world stops, everyone goes quiet, and a union is solemnly joined

Physically, the world is the same afterward, but on a human level everything is different. A mysterious door has been opened, entered, traversed.

It is one of the defining joys of the human condition. We weave together a consensus within our collective minds. And explicitly, beautifully, it becomes reality.
