Well this weekend was quite a time. Visit from an out of state friend/family, a wedding, conversing with the Divine, and a photoshoot with truly astounding tribe. But I digress (not really but it sounds good)…
To start our lovely friend Jessica came up to spend the weekend from Memphis TN and we did our level best to get her out and about, to get a feel for our peoples here in the Midwest. We went to a concert, she got to stand in as a grooms-man at a wedding, and got to meet new family. She also had messages for all the Dragons here. (Side note: My fire troupe is called Dragon’s Gaze so each member is considered a Dragon) The messages were of a nature that was needed for each of us and apparently I have managed to draw the attention of those outside of the pantheon that I subscribe to. Cool! I suppose I am doing something right! Or is that rite?
Anyway, Saturday was the wedding ceremony for two of our other Dragons and that day was plagued with issues upon issues. But the bride arrived and was absolutely stunning, the groom was exhausted and all smiles. His only question upon arriving? “Is she here?”, to which I replied, “Yes and smiling”. The response was, “Then it is a perfect day” as thunder sounded overhead and the rain came down. A blessing for a fruitful marriage from all the Deities and that response said all that was needed about that young man. The reception that followed was small but very fun, and the new couple could actually spend more than a second with all in attendance.
Sunday was a blast as I did photos in Tower Grove Park for S.J. Tucker and Heather Dale plus Ben and John. These people were so much fun to work with, a true joy and it was less work and just simply put more of a recording of play. To spend time in the company of such vibrant and spiritual people was revitalizing.
Monday we had dinner with some close friends and was able to take Jessica along due to a snafu with her bus. Laughter and ideas were shared over delicious food as two separate circles of friends not only met face to face for the first time, but clicked instantly. The biggest regret was having to leave that night.
Just because things seem random or unplanned it doesn’t mean that your day (night/evening/bath time) needs to go all out the window. Our choices guide the results, and we are the ones to choose just how we react to our trials and tribulations. Yes, there are going to be times when we make the worse choice, but it was our choice to make. So next time your beautiful wedding is about to be rained out, get out there and dance in the damn storm!
