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.
