Hello Dear Readers,
If you follow me on twitter, you have have noticed that I have been rather quiet lately, well, the reason for this is my impending wedding, which is now only five weeks away! If you’ve ever been involved in organising a wedding, you’ll be well aware how much headspace it can take up. As it draws closer, I am spending more and more time on what I am calling ‘wedding admin’ – counting rsvps, checking dietary requirements, updating table plans (and hoping X won’t mind being on the same table as Y), and so on. The trouble is, as I am spending so much time on wedding admin, and of course there is work, other personal commitments, and trying to still find time to be creative, I am losing out on thinking time.
A while ago, I wrote a poem for a wedding, entitled ‘This is not just a wedding,’ and although the words were specific to this couple, the title rings true for me too. This is not just a wedding, it’s a marriage. It’s not about table plans and dietary requirements and whether people will get on and where we need to be and when… It’s about me, and him, coming together as a new family, and what that might mean for us.
I may pop up online (most likely on twitter) between now and June, but after that, I’ll effectively be offline until July, so I’ll see you back here then!
