To leave the earth was my wish, and no will stayed my rising.Early, before sun had filled the roads with cartsConveying folk to weddings and to murders;Before men left their selves of sleep, to wanderIn the dark of the world like whipped beasts.
All weddings are similar but every marriage is different. Death comes to everyone but one mourns alone.John Peter Berger
Like all weddings it had left the strange feeling of futility, the slight sense of depression that comes to English people who have tried, from their strong sense of tradition, to be festive and sentimental and in high spirits too early in the day. The frame of mind supposed to be appropriate to an afternoon wedding can only be genuinely experienced by an Englishman at two o'clock in the morning.Ada Leverson
Fair weather weddings make fair weather lives.
In Ethiopia , food is often looked at through a strong spiritual lens , stronger than anywhere else I know. It's the focal point of weddings , births and funerals and is a daily ceremony from the preparation of the meal and the washing of hands to the sharing of meals.
