Awesome: Unbridled Joy

KUDOS, SIR!  There is a time for decorum and solemn ceremony, and there is a time for freewheeling exuberance.  The wedding is over, so it's time for some fun -- like somersaults under the gorgeous spring foliage.  The TV news reader disapproves, but blogger Cranmer, a serious and thoughtful fellow, is plainly delighted.  There is something glorious in joy.  You forget yourself in it.  And it cannot help but share its pleasure.  We have enough po-faced finger-waggers, especially of the self-proclaimed religious sort.  I'm charmed to see an example to the contrary.  UPDATE:  The cartwheeling verger's name is Ben Sheward.
