Something I like about life? It is so dang unpredictable.
I was asked to solemnize a marriage ceremony in Joshua Tree.
This is not something I have ever wished to do. Neither is it something anybody in my family has ever done. And oddly, the request did not even come from somebody I knew.
Yet, the honor is so great, and the request so sincere, that I have accepted, and I will be a Deputy of Marriage Commissioner for one day, and one day only, and that day is Monday, March 14, 2011.
I will be pulling from a variety of sources during the wedding: my father’s recommendation of “Ten Commandments for Married Life” by Reverend Hyo Sup Choi; an e.e. cummings poem, the conventional ceremony script, and my personal words to round out the couple’s own vows.
More details to follow. Right now, I’m off to prepare.
