Over the months I've been blogging at The Intersection, I've shared a little bit about myself here... Readers may remember I'm drummer in a girl band, have a strange affinity for sea cucumbers, and a habit of pulling crazy stunts as a radio personality. What you may not know is it also happens I can legally preside over weddings. Just another little thing I do.

This past Sunday, family, friends, and community from all over the world and all walks of life converged in the misty mountains of western Massachusetts for three days of celebrating the marriage of my big brother, Seth, and new sister, Jen. And best of all, your resident blogger had the honor of officiating the ceremony. You see, Seth is my hero. While we both seek to improve the world, he acts at the local level by working on the ground to support the people in his community. Seth is an educator and inspires his students to live what they believe based on the principles of justice, freedom, and peace. Not just on paper, but in practice - several of them were there participating in the wedding as testimony. Jen, his wife and my beautiful new sister, is his equal in every way. Now I understand it's common for a little sister to be in awe of her big bro, but throughout the weekend, everyone I met seemed to have a story about how these two touched their lives. So now officially united as partners, I can't even imagine what's possible... but sure look forward to finding out! So to Seth and Jen: Keep dreaming together because you're a constant source of hope for a better future on this little planet of ours. Congratulations and Love to my Big Brother and Big Sister! And no, we didn't eat sea bass.
