“You are the sky. Everything else – it’s just the weather.” ~ Pema Chödrön
It wasn’t my first time on the Veteran’s Memorial highway, but I was still a little nervous during my 5 mile drive up Whiteface Mountain. It wasn’t the bumps or the steep winding turns of the road that had me worried; it was the massive downpour that threatened to put a damper on the wedding ceremony of Rob & Rebecca.
Shortly after arriving, prayers were answered and the rain stopped. What remained, was a fog so thick, visibility was zero. On a clear day, one can see all the way to Montreal, eighty miles away. On this day, that wasn’t the case.
But, that was OK. In fact, the mist and clouds made for an almost magical backdrop; perfect for a couple whose love and spirits could not be dampened.
