Today is the Day

It is always strange arriving at a highly anticipated day. Whether it's a joyous occasion like a wedding or a heartbreaking gathering like a funeral; weeks, months, years of planning are played out within the same short 24-hr time period, after which the sun rises on a "new normal" and we learn to adjust our hopes and sorrows to somehow account for the magnitude and consequences of that one highly anticipated day...

"Everyone who is born holds dual citizenship, in the kingdom of the well and in the kingdom of the sick. Although we all prefer to use only the good passport, sooner or later each of us is obliged, at least for a spell, to identify ourselves as citizens of that other place." - Susan Sontag
