all our faces

The Langers and New Son-in-law

I ate Kenyan food this weekend.
And I liked it.

Jake's cousin Maria married Eliud on Saturday and it was beautiful.

They surrounded her with dance and music and draped her in cloth and beaded head-dresses as tears streamed down her face. As tears streamed down all our faces.

They said it was to welcome her to the family and to say thank you for her.

Cultures were joined, traditions were shared, bread was broken.
And I liked it.
