Tired I sit at the desk. I came back here early in the morning at 5 from a wedding. It took place in Franfurt a.M. and was the most peaceful, harmonic and friendly example of his kind I attend so far. The church was full and the catholic mass was impressive on me, but I know not exactly whether it was the catholic in it or the non-protestant.
The following welcome was nice and later family and friends gathered in a hotel. A friendly location not too large with good food and service. Speeches were given, relatives of both bride and groom singing songs mildly poking fun, later dancing. A peaceful atmosphere, no quarrelling, no drunk cousin … The bridal pair in its late forties with the guests in the same range of age it was a very homogen group. It was easy to have conversations with strangers. I was at weddings in my own family and from friends 20 years younger that turned into desasters, I am sure anyone can tell stories about such events. But when you are of a certain age, have functioning families and enough money to care for the fitting surroundings it does not have to.
From two o’clock on the audience thinned out, we sat for a quiet chat. Later I drove home via the empty autobahn, right into the morning through the blue hour between roughly 4 and 5 and when I arrived the birds had their full morning-conversations on – what do they have to talk about early in the morning? Are they all repeating their dreams to each others?
