Today's The Day

Today is the day every father anticipates, dreads or fears; the day his daughter marries a man. Ours has been a long journey and for me, it's the right day, the right man, the right thing to do. Liz is so happy with Jeff, and he with her. Family and friends are gathering. The house has been turned into a restaurant, with all the furniture removed to bedrooms or the studio. It's nice to have a study to retreat to for some quiet while the rest of the family sleeps (other than my father-in-law and Martha). What's really cool is to see how many different people just show up and know what to do. My job right now? To take the advice from my brother and be like the harpoonist in Moby Dick: sit still and poised.
