...maybe not quite the soul of wit, but in the neighborhood:
  • 16:27 My phone keeps spontaneously turning off. Annoying. #
  • 17:12 Crying because I just realized it's after 5:00 and people are getting married RIGHT NOW who couldn't before and it makes me very happy. #

I'm amazed that there seem to be people who think that there's a fixed amount of marriage to go around and that we should hoard it all to ourselves. :-)

that's really well put.

i remember the first wedding i attended in massachusetts. two of my best friends. outside in their yard in Gloucester, visible from the road.

people walking by when the minister said, "by the power vested in my by the commonwealth of massachusetts" (at the beginning) yelled and clapped and cheered and stopped to watch the rest of the ceremony.

the feeling of all of my nerves and hair on end as the totality of it sunk in and i realized i could get married someday. i'd never really given it much thought, having it not be an option. and suddenly it was. and i felt dizzy and overwhelmed and happy and confused and angry and sad an overjoyed.

and then they were married and it was legal.

so much love.
