patterns of ink

How fruitless to be ever thinking yet never embrace a thought... to have the power to believe and believe it's all for naught. I, too, have reckoned time and truth (content to wonder if not think) in metaphors and meaning and endless patterns of ink. Perhaps a few may find their way to the world where others live, sharing not just thoughts I've gathered but those I wish to give. Tom Kapanka

They are very happy, very in love, very "together," and my brother has a knack for capturing it. He also has some footage of them telling their engagement story. That's fun to hear. He's trying to shorten it down for Youtube.

Once again, if I lose my day job, I know who to contact about becoming a full-time videographer. No more silly catfish collages for me. Weddings is serious business (but I already knew that from my chauffeuring days). As for writer's block, I don't believe in it. As Joel Saltzman says, "If you can talk, you can write." You just don't feeling liking talking right now, and that's okay. Enjoy your camping.

JRT,
I think that's pretty true about writer's block. I talked with my mom tonight about that story. I needed a few details clarified in my mind. I think a few days away will be just what I needed.
As to becoming a videographer, you and Dave have many other things in common. He, too, taught in the corrections system (im Macomb Co.) and he also drove a limo on the side. If you saw the entire DVD, you'd see he likes "weaving" images of a day into a story.

I'm behind on my comments (as usual), but let me say first of all, beautiful video...beautiful couple. You can definitely sense the love connection there.
Just watched the You Tube clip about the Farmer's Market in Boulder and had to laugh out loud when they showed someone using Crocs (sp?) to display their herbs or whatever that was. I would have guessed it was Boulder just by seeing that small clip!
And I finally responded to some of your q's on my blog. I don't know if my responses make any sense, but, as always, thanks for stopping by.

I know all about that emotional roller coaster you are on and it is one that I did not anticipate.

Your video is awesome and your daughter is gorgeous. It is amazing that your brother could pull this off with all that he went through. He did a great job!

I am also amazed with the similarity of our daughters wedding dresses. When I post a picture you will not believe how much alike they are!

I can just feel the love and excitement your entire family has experienced and the "hanky" idea was just so sentimental.

You are one special dad! How lucky your kids are and I am sure they know it!

What an exquisite video. And, that is one of my favorite songs and it fits so perfectly.

Your daughter and her husband are a gorgeous young couple. I hope they have a long, happy life together. It's what life is all about, isn't it?

So nice. Wishing them the best.
Writers block? So that's what I have.

Julie,
I've been to CO three times, and you're right, they have their own way of doing things there, but I like it.
It's been fun watching that love connection for a few years and it's all the more complete now. (We're camping this week, and I just got some temporary internet access. They were out at the campfire tonight with us. We all played "Scatacories." It was fun.

Nancy,
Similar dresses and simiar professions. If you click on "lacing up the dress" at the July 1st post, you'll see detail of the dress. We've been away from internet for two days, and I see that Emily left me a comment at the end of the post below. Now that is cool! Thanks, Em!

Josie,
Always good to hear from you. You may recall that this is also a favorite song of one of our friends, LGS. He hasn't commented here for a while, but I do think he may have stopped by to see this.
Last weekend, I was rinsing off the two Adirondacks in our back yard and thought of your painting.

Jill,
It's been a while. How are things in Texas? Thanks for stopping by.

Chris,
Welcome to POI. Come again. I see you "know" Nancy (NC) and yet you're from Michigan. It always amazes me how people from near and far away connect in the blogosphere. Is that Lake Michigan or Lake Huron in the background of your profile?

Jewell,
So glad you were able to be there. I felt bad that we didn't get around to everyone, but I knew our local friends would understand that it was just one of those days when the out-of-staters who were leaving that day or the next morning wanted to visit before they left.
Keith and Em came out to the campground with us tonight for a little while. It was fun. We're still gone for a couple days.

Tom,

Thank you for the welcome. It's actually the Atlantic Ocean. My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary back in February by renewing our vows and going to the Bahamas for our first honeymoon. :)

What a handsome young couple they are. Such a wonderful video too.

I hope you enjoyed your camping trip and maybe got some boating in. I've been out on my boat two weekends in a row. Just hought I'd stop by and say Hello.

Glad you are back! Trips are great but it really makes you appreciate home.

It was so special to have Em leave you such a sweet comment. My kids rarely comment but when they do... I love it!

A week later, it really seems longer than that... but I am still enjoying each moment through friends, family, and pictures. We don't have our video yet. I can't wait!

Chris,
Oops! Only people who live on the great lakes can understand that they look like oceans of fresh water. Sounds like you had a great trip.

J_G,
We did have a nice little camping trip. It wasn't too far away, which makes it less work. We had one night with some rain but we need the rain so badly that it was welcome and helps reinforce that "cozy" feeling of shelter that is at the heart of camping.

Nancy,
It's funny that you mention appreciating home after a trip, it occurred to me as we were unpacking that it's a strange pastime to leave all the comforts of home and regular bed to deliberately set up camp with makeshift comforts. There's something in us (or in many folks, at least) that is drawn to do it now and then.
A month has now passed since Em's wedding. Between that event, the now-spare room, and the fact that we just got back from "the woods," it still feels a little strange in the house.
