Drift Away

Was having a flick through the wedding album over Shabbas. The thought that struck me was how different the crowd would be if it has been held today some 14 months later.

No doubt people who were invited then wouldn't be now and vice versa. Apart from a few people, your friend base is quite fluid and can fluctuate greatly. There were people back then who were on the cusp who we see far more of now than some people who were invited.

Choosing who to invite to your wedding is not an easy task and the wisdom of Solomon would assist greatly. Continuing with the biblical metaphors you use a Jacob's ladder approach where your pick a certain level and invite everyone above it even though that means inviting someone who is on the way down.

Another interesting thing was seeing how different, people looked in the space of just over a year.

One year can really shift the lb's in either direction, and people can look much younger/older in a short space of time. At the end of the day, real friends stay for a long time. Forever Friend's isn't necc true, but long standing, good and true friends pass the test of time and distance.

Marissa - Sorry, no secret formula

If - That's definitely right. Friends for life, not just a summer or a spring, Amigos para siempre....

Anonymous - Definitely! First 2 invited :)

Kasamba - No need to crash - you would have been invited as well. But does that mean we get invitations to the simchas of radish, asparagus, cucumber, cauliflower, carrot and turnip?

Lizrael - :) Thanks for dropping by.
