I’m at my cousin’s wedding

The majority of the time I’ve spent with my cousin over the years happened in Canada where we’d jump off cliffs into a lake

One thing that’s great about jumping off cliffs with your cousins and other family is the absence of fear

As you’re rushing towards the water you don’t feel the fear of pain & death

Because your family is there

You trust them to take care of you if anything goes wrong

You feel safe in a simple uncomplicated way

That’s what a marriage is

Or should be

A simple bond of safety & love as you jump again & again off the uncertain cliff that is life.
