In 7 days, I’ll be in Chattanooga, TN supporting one of my best friends from college get married. My emotional responses to past weddings range from embarrassingly sentimental to rudely cynical. I’ve no idea how I’ll respond to this one. I know and deeply admire both parties, so I imagine it will be fairly moving.
At any rate, the following video really captured me. It made me re-believe in the fundamental beauty of humanity. We humans love to have fun; we love to express ourselves; we celebrate the good and the true in life. This occurs amidst kitsch and high culture alike.
