Wedding March

Monday, December 10, 2007

Listening to Wagner’s Wedding March from Lohengrin, I can’t help but think about all the wedding bustle going on around me – my younger sister getting married in a few weeks, a close friend tying the knot in January, conversations revolving around licenses, menus and guest lists, the frenzy about the perfect white dress.

Shouldn’t preparations be done for the marriage itself and not just for the wedding? Must the focus be on the wedding march, or should it be on the couple’s journey towards oneness, instead?

Will matrimony ever be more than merely an intangible abstraction for me? Will I ever march down the aisle with Wagner’s famous piece playing in the background?

You are one perceptive person.. how do you know that it depresses me? :)

Mendelssohn's march is less poignant. Some even use Ode to Joy. :)

i keep thinking of the same thing - but - not all people are meant to be married...maybe i'm one of them.
