It’s the end of a day indoors, finishing up this piece for a wedding shower in the morning. Not your usual shower because it’s totally coed. No party games, not for this bride and her groom. Just family, friends , food, drinks, a few short speeches and my video.
I remember meeting Jamie when she was racing around her grandmother’s swimming pool and I was new to Pearl River Schools and Hilda was a colleague and new friend. Her daughter Jane had just given birth to her second daughter and we stood together at a honey cake party, celebrating Rosh Hashanah and I felt at home.
That was 1986 and now Jamie is getting married and I get to share the video I created tomorrow. Right now it’s still mine even though I did share it with Jane and Michael, the hosts of the shower, but it’s still mine. Tomorrow when it goes public, I’ll still love it but I’ll be passing it on and let it go and start something new.
But first I’ll take a break before the next creative plunge.
