At Last…

At last… two very dear friends of mine have finally put a ring on 34 years of happiness. Dexter and Daryl have been married in every other sense of the word since 1981 and I have had the pleasure of watching them mellow together like a very fine wine.

Officiated by a friend, the ceremony was tiny and set in a lovely condo at the Gregory… a little champagne, a little salmon mousse and a license to sign. Then we headed into rush hour traffic and landed at the Hotel Eastlund for a fine meal and the company of 18 old friends… many people I haven’t seen in a long while. In all of it, the evening seemed to buzz with a quiet satisfaction… glances across the table and all of the conversations and laughter.

All of us have waited a long time for this wedding… at last, we got to raise a cheerful glass to the two married guys at the center of this little crowd!

I wouldn’t have missed this one for the world!

So many cranes… it was all bigger than I expected. We walked from Wall Street over to the windy construction site… big enough that you can’t really see across it very well. Caught in the steady traffic of the walking rush hour, we worked our way over to The Winter Garden where there is a place you can look into the site. Couldn’t get past the inner images of the way the streets must have looked that day.

Today, they are dedicating a more beautiful space to so many people… I wonder if we will ever heal.
