Ceremonies

I LOVE ritual and ceremonies and officiate at weddings, memorials, baby namings, house blessings and other celebrations. If you entrust me as your celebrant, I will do everything I can to help you create a ceremony that has real meaning to you and reflects who you are.

As I dig for wild orchids
in the autumn fields,
it is the deeply-bedded root
that I desire,
not the flower.
--Izumi Shikibu (974-1034)

Few people have ever wished to be exclusively rational. The good life that most desire is warmed by passions and touched by that ceremonial grace which is impossible without some affectionate loyalty to traditional form and ceremonies.
