I just came back from the MOST MAGICAL wedding that I have ever been to…

It was the wedding of my nephew Sean with his girlfriend Heather …who have known each other for over 10 years…..

like ALL EXPERIENCES in LIFE…one HAD to be there…

as words just do not describe what HAPPENED….

like the gorgeous Llinda, the bride’s mother gave a toast …

on my brother and sister-in-law’s Croquet Court…..where the wedding was held…which was SOO SOO moving…it was something you cannot read …what she said as…

it was THE EMOTION that her essence and her physical Being Conveyed …well it just knocked the socks off of you……all I can say it was to her vocal sounds of a Heart Beat…birthing her daughter…who found many years later Sean….the soul-mate…. and giving up her child to Sean…… that just brought tears to your eyes…

and the same ELECTRICIY was thrown our way by Susi – the Groom’s (what a weird word..who is he grooming)……Mom.

…Susi.. had lost her voice …..but had written this BEAUTIFUL Ballad that she sang to Sean and Heather as she played her guitar….so moving and so TRUE….

and this was all after the ceremony and the sun had set at 10:00 PM….

My mind is like a WHIRL Wind….it will take a LONG time for things to settle…..as being with my 4 siblings….my 5 nephews….(the youngest being 10 months and the eldest being 20 years younger than me…breathing on 44)…..well it just has shook me up in a VERY emotional way….a true learning experience…..

.(n Ricci I sooo loved what you said to me..I DO SO LOVE YOU!!!!)

(n Suggins – I LOVE YOU AND Maria…and young Sumner V – all of 10 months…who has ALREADY a look in his smiling eyes…. .”The SEARCH for ADVENTURE” …like so MANY Mattesons before us…am thinking of Sumner the second…the photographer who traveled to where most white men would not…back in the 1800’s ..and to Dad…who endlessly sought it out……

…funny how things …experiences…beliefs… LIFE can .change in a 3 minute unexpected conversational/emotional lightening bolt)…..

on the plane back to LA I was reading the “New York” magazine….their was a review of the latest “Toy Story” movie…that “gob smacked” me about our family…it said:

“…the film will touch something deeper, the heartfelt wish that our childhood memories will never fade. This lovely, wistful movie weaves together our joyful fantasies of the past, the ones that helped form us, and our darker fears of being forgotten – and offers hope that we can somehow reconcile those poles of existence for ourselves……”

at the end of the day …..

that is WHAT the experience of Sean and Heather’s Wedding CREATED f or Me!!!!!

EVERYONE there “kept the fire lit and the dance going…”

and for THAT I am deeply Thankful!!!!

and here are the photos I took….am terribly sorry that I am so awful on remembering names…but choose “slide show” to view….it is on the far left …..under my photo’s
