I've been reading a lot of Millay this morning. Whatever else I can say about my relationship with Jordan, I owe him for Millay. His favorite was the third sonnet on the page -- mine is the first. But I'm a hopeless romantic, I fear.
Todd and Debby have gotten engaged! It's the best news I've heard in a while, and I'm certain they'll continue to be very happy together. It's funny -- the engagement/wedding is usually the happy ending of a fairy tale. That seems so inappropriate to me these days -- most of my friends live together for years before they get married, and the wedding seems -- well, not quite a simple formality, but not an ending or a beginning either. More of a confirmation and a continuation? Well, I love weddings in any case, whatever their symbolism. I still remember Kira and Sean's wedding -- I've been to many beautiful weddings, but at theirs I was close enough to see their faces clearly (since I was a hoopah-bearer), and I don't think I've ever seen people so joyful in my life. Incandescent.
I have too many thoughts going through my head to continue this now, I think. Incoherent. Perhaps later. Perhaps tomorrow.
