A Wedding Picnic in Old Westbury Gardens

This was the day Kelly and Carlos had their wedding – a picnic with friends and family, just at the beginning of summer.

And what I remember is the endless neon-green orchards fields.
White linens on the grass.
Birds, bees, wild flowers.
Walls covered with exotic drawings. Haunting. Inviting.
Beautiful women in floral dresses. Unfamiliar tongs. Seductive. Full of life.
The intimacy of vowels under the dome of an ancient, low-hanging evergreen.
Kelly walking barefoot.
Carlos levitating.
Moments of happy silence.

The beginning.
