Ever After

"I've always believed that life is divided into two parts, what is and what should be, and with a lot of effort, some hard work, and maybe a bit of luck, there are moments in your life when the two parts touch, and what is and what should be, are the same." --Ed's wedding speech, Ed

In fiction, weddings seem to happen all the time, like tonight's final episode of Ed, Happily Ever After. A real wedding however, I had not experienced until yesterday's ceremony upon a small boat on the Brisbane river. Thoroughly enjoyable, surprisingly emotional and a touch ironic I thought, that I was stuck filming from behind the video camera almost the whole time.

That which is, a complex creature that resides in human consciousness alongside the equally, if not more complex, that which should be, ever adapting to new input and information as it arrives to alter the mind's environment. Two convergent species, once worlds apart, will at times come together, and for the briefest of moments, they are one, indistinguishable. When being merely content, fleetingly takes the shape of happiness.

Well I guess this just about wraps it up - for the moment at least - this crazy little experiment of mine that I've been cultivating over the past year; something to look back on, days in the life. I hadn't even planned to make it this far, becoming almost accustomed to the somewhat unnatural task of publicly sharing thoughts, I could possibly have continued, but I think it seems a fitting time to take a break now, move on to find what's right.

My thanks and amazement goes out to anyone who's taken the time of day to read anything I've poured from my cluttered head out into words. May you remain ever after, striving towards all that should be.

Wow, that's the second blog I read in 2 days that's decided to go on break for several months. Well, I enjoyed reading your mind dumps, even though I only found it a week ago. Thanks for sharing for a time.

Hey Josh,

That sounded like you were hinting of thinking of getting married and I thought you possiably said that you don't know if you are ready, thinking or even concidering it but I think you have caught the wedding bug. But anyway thanks for the comment on my blog and thanks for coming to the wedding.

Hi Josh,

Sorry I haven't been in touch in many months. I discovered your blog on Blog Explosion one evening last year and was really excited to find it. I love the way your mind works, the way you write. Hope to have a continuing friendship with you, however long-distance it may be, as we're practically at opposite ends of the earth. Let's keep in touch!

Judy
