Celebrating Joy!

Want to know the reason I didn't post on this blog on this past Saturday as I usually do?

It's because Susan and I spent most of Saturday in a redwood forest, miles inland and uphill from the village of Mendocino. There among the trees and surrounded by a crowd of friends, family, lots of children, lots of musicians, a minister (my son Ben), a beautiful bride Hannah, and her fine and lucky chosen partner, Tyler.

It was a ceremony and a party to cherish forever. So forgive me if this week I don't write about the Joy of Story. Instead I post here a joyful picture, worth a 1,000-word story. Please greet this happy couple with a smile.

This proud and sentimental grandpa sends

Love to all...
