Three Weddings and a Funeral and a Baby – blog style

September 29th, 2005 · No Comments

Often as I look through the blogs in my aggregator, I find stories of birth and death, loss and love. As I read them all together it becomes a big picture of who we are as people, how we live as humans, a roller coaster ride through milestones of memories, from sorrow to joy, overwhelming, fun and refreshing all at once. Here’s a few I’ve seen recently:

Congratulations to Wendy and Joey on their wedding this past weekend! Of course, the big question is, what will happen to their wedblog? ;-) The couple has decided to post the transcript of their ceremony there – fun to read. I confess I was on Feedster Sunday morning searching for “Wendy Joey wedding”. Even Ethan Zuckerman’s slightly fuzzy photos show how happy they were. Wendy wrote: I seriously did not know it was possible to have that much fun in a huge white (ivory) dress.

Congratulations also to the writer of HadashiWorld who was also getting married this past weekend.

so please, i hope you’ll excuse the fact that HadashiWorld is going to be somewhat silent for a little while… i’ve got plans for the weekend.

While looking through blogs I discovered Mie, whom I met at BloggerCon III in the session I led on Emotional Life, got married at Burning Man! (by the way, I enjoy her bio that describes her bicultural identity.)

The creative blog evangelist Philippe Boucher has remembered his father by creating En souvenir de Louis Boucher. Although I don’t speak French, I can look at the posts and get glimpses of his father and family life.

Two other posts on death affected me this week:

Rod Kratchowill pointed to this piece in the New York Times by Joan Didion describing the loss of her husband After Life.

Freedom Girl, a blogger in Port Orchard, explained why she spent a week in Pittsburgh saying goodbye to an old friend.

I always love the new baby posts! Scott Koon’s daughter Amelia arrived last week. Congrats to everyone!
