Still life (in them)

Doug Kerr

Well-known member
2019.08.10 was Carla's 81st birthday. Each of her older two kids sent her a lovely flower arrangement.

By a few days ago, many of the blooms had reached their end of useful life, but not all. Carla extracted the ones from both arrangements with a few more days in them and arranged them in a clear glass cube vase from an arrangement I had sent her in June for our 20th anniversary.

Such “assemblage” of ceremonial gifts using the already ritualized vessel of your 20th Anniversary, is actually in the mechanism and formal structure of “giving and accepting sacrament”, as for example in “communion” used a sacred cup in the Catholic Church.

The assertion that it’s the flesh blood of Christ is fitting, in its particular religious context but actually it’s also still essentially partaking of a “communal feeding and bonding” that is basic to all cultures and inherently beautiful.

Ceremony is so human and important to us and we celebrate each other and our good fortune to be loved!

Well, I'm not big on transubstantiation, but what you ascribe to it is lovely indeed.

Ceremony is so human and important to us . . .


Yes, and it took me many years to really appreciate that!

. .and we celebrate each other and our good fortune to be loved!
Yes, indeed.

Best regards,

Doug
