The Echo

.

on this day, there shall come a Sound, soft and slow, yet with an enduring rhythm, rising as a golden wind, to capture the souls of all men, and to embrace the hearts of all women . . . and from this moment on, until all moments fade, the Sound shall be known as the Breath of Angels . . . 

now, alone together, with the fire of Love for ever in your eyes, you will stand with hearts as one, and talk, of days to come . . . 

the voyage is upon you . . . place your hand in each other’s, and feel the dream, the desire, and the devotion . . . your hearts will surge with a joyous anticipation, as you navigate the oceans of Promise and Fulfillment . . . you are to become the treasure of all dreams, for if you laced each moment of your lives together with fine silver thread, more precious would they be, than a web of pearls . . .

The When of It

.

.

Thirty-eight years ago,  I wrote these words as The Vows for my own wedding . . . and in 1995,  I choreographed the music for the wedding and reception of an old high-school friend of mine,  once again incorporating The Vows into their ceremony . . . and I never looked back . . .

Since then,  I have had the extreme pleasure of officiating in dozens of weddings,  telling this same story,  and uniting those who have come to understand the magnitude of its meaning,  and spirit . . . and in April of 2012, I had the distinct honor of presiding at my own son’s wedding . . .

The words also became the essence and driving force behind what would one day culminate in a book of stories,  artwork,  poetry,  and romantic verse called The Voyage of Kings,  whose pages currently number well over 3,000 . . .

and whose pages,  are laid before you now . . .
