“What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.” — Anne Lamott
Today, my fiancee and I will exercise our constitutional right in the state of New York to get married when we go and pick up our marriage license. We’ll actually be getting hitched Thursday. I’m so glad I live in a state where this is possible, and in a time where, even slowly,…
WOOO CONGRATS GIRL :)))
Thank you and to the others who congratulated us! We’ve got the license now and we made an appointment with the mayor’s office, he’ll be officiating our marriage on Thursday! Her parents and my dad and his wife will be there (my mom won’t be able to make it, which I’d pretty much expected, but she’ll be front and center when we have the big fancy fun party wedding next May, so I think she’ll get over it. (considering neither of them got to go to my brother’s wedding - he eloped, we all found out days later - I think it’ll make them happy to even have a chance. ;) )
When Sarah Lyn Eaton was seven years old, she discovered a doorway into Other World between three pine trees on Grand Street on her morning walk to school. She’s been seeking out gateways ever since. She is secretly waiting until she finds the world where life is peppered by people spontaneously bursting into song (in some parallel world Sarah makes a living as a peppy back-up singer with great jazz hands). When she’s not dreaming story lines, she’s hunting down the lines of her mothers and fathers and has collected over 1500 ancestor names, which she sprinkles throughout her stories. Sarah has previously published the graphic story “Of Roots and Rings”, in the anthology Elf Love (2012) and also keeps a blog about her Ancestor Work and genealogy at walkingwithancestors.blogspot.com.It’s a good thing Sarah does not clarify which Grand Street, in which town, else I might make a break for it.Keep checking back for more intro’s and updates, and please keep singing out and spreading the word about us!-A
