It's not that kind of a blog, but because of its occasional mention of the woman I refer to as Supergirl, and the congratulations of some of my regulars on the last post, I thought I might as well announce that we were nuptially conjoined this past weekend.

In a ceremony in which we were surrounded, literally, by friends and family, and witnessed by passersby on the Miami Beach boardwalk, this stanza from The Country of Marriage by Wendell Berry was read:

Our bond is no little economy based on the exchange
of my love and work for yours, so much for so much
of an expendable fund. We don't know what its limits are—
that puts us in the dark. We are more together
than we know, how else could we keep on discovering
we are more together than we thought?
You are the known way leading always to the unknown,
and you are the known place to which the unknown is always
leading me back. More blessed in you than I know,
I possess nothing worthy to give you, nothing
not belittled by my saying that I possess it.
Even an hour of love is a moral predicament, a blessing
a man may be hard up to be worthy of. He can only
accept it, as a plant accepts from all the bounty of the light
enough to live, and then accepts the dark,
passing unencumbered back to the earth, as I
have fallen time and again from the great strength
of my desire, helpless, into your arms.

Hey Franklin, congratulations to you and [Supergirl] (hope I spelled her name right) All the best, lots of luck and love to you both...I'll tell you, marriage is the best thing that ever happened to me, I've never felt so at peace just knowing my husband loves me and that I love him!! Nothing bothers me ,because I know I have him to lean on and can trust him without a doubt. And he knows I will do the same!! And I know you and [Supergirl] feel the same...So, congrats again to you and the beautiful bride, and have you any plans for children in the future??

Thanks! And thanks specifically to you, Julie. We're looking forward to it. Supergirl, when she read your question about kids, said, "Give me a minute..."

Franklin, this was your best decision for 2007 ! I drink some glasses of wine with my wife on your future. Hope to see soon some little babies/emerging young artists. Best regards from Tbilisi,

Hans and Teona

Congratulations to you both. It seems I was also in Florida for a wedding on the same day, if I'm reading the post correctly, though on the beach near Tampa and not Miami. I gathered the impression that people down there like to celebrate these things, though. Celebrate a lot.
