I’ve been spending the last 8 months thinking all love ever does
Is break and burn and end
But on a Wednesday in a cafe I watched it begin again

TWO PEOPLE, four religions, and a love story that tugs at you even over email. And then the final blow to every scornful guard upheld against tales of romance: the wedding pictures. Priya Desai and Tariq Alwari danced their way through the wedding day they recall was everything they imagined, surrounded by those eager to raise a toast to this resilient couple.

This here has been in my inbox for nearly a month and I have been meaning to get around to it ever since. I can say that despite a real-life enactment of the tired cliche–a journey for self-discovery via more exotic, less fortunate destinations–Christina Rivera’s words, once read, seem authentic.

Some bits that seemed relevant and could be shared–without giving away too much of the writing itself.

I am…

It was a relentless self-inquiry; the blank drawing longer and the question only spinning more furiously with each book I pulled off the metaphysics shelf.

Finally I put the books down. Put everything down. Realizing that I would find none of my answers in their conclusions and that these were chapters only I could write.

“Vocation,” not so much as it is defined as an occupation or profession, but as the term was refined by Frederick Buechner as:

The place where your great gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.

cuz i breathe poems

and

live songs

dance silently

at the oddest times

smile often

for no good reason

find rhythm

in your laughter

feel alive

when it

rains or shines

i am.

Where Am I?
