What is all this joy when people greet the bride at receptions? Photographing these moments has made me aware of what they all have in common. The bride and the guests are always different, but the joy is the same. What is this joy?
Imagine that there is only one Self that has divided into individual selves, and when these individual selves meet and touch each other, especially with the bride, that recognition flashes forth and there is a moment of joy. Then, quick as a hummingbird, the joy leaves and the individual self returns. We look at our watch and wonder when this reception is going to end. But for a second we were OneSelf. And that is Love.
