Wedding Time!

If I ever needed proof that life flows through peaks and valleys, moves in seasonal cycles, or is ever-ever-changing, these last two months have been more than ample evidence. On May 6th, I said my vows and married a wonderful, incredible man. Two weeks later, we spent 14 wonderful days traveling Central Europe on our honeymoon. It was the best. That phrase is a bit lacking in the descriptive language department, I know, but it's loaded with love and gratitude.

One of the things I loved best about my wedding day is that I was really there. I wasn't worried about the future (except briefly when I thought I'd be late to the church), I wasn't worried about the past. I was smiling, and laughing, and DANCING, and I was so so present. Even the observing voice we cultivate in our yoga practice, the one that watches and says "This is you breathing, this is you having a good time, notice how wonderful you feel right now," even that voice melted away. There was no separation between me and the experience I was having. Is a celebration with all of the people you love most in the world a path to enlightenment? I can't say for sure, but it felt pretty close to heaven.
