Notes known by heart*

June 14, 2009

“Marriage is work,” people will offer, unsolicited, their advice plucked from their own lives, their love or lack of it, their own story.

But, marriage can be words juxtaposed in a way no one thought of before, the surprise turn inside a jazz phrase, a life built so creatively that two become more beautiful, more whole, as one.

Even moments of dissonance cannot quell the optimism of a song sung, low and sweet, in the ear under a cathedral ceiling. That is your story. That is your melody, resolving joyfully, resolving with the notes that both of you know by heart.

*For Roger and Michelle, on their wedding day
