“A Toast For Keely & Mark”
This past weekend my friend Keely got hitched. Even though this is one wedding I didn’t have to photograph, I of course couldn’t help myself from capturing a few frames for memory’s sake. Keely is one of the most optimistic and cheerful people I know. Yet, her optimism isn’t born from a weakened sense of reality (for the world is often a dark place), but rather from a genuine conviction in the light of man to affect positive changes in our world. Seeing this kind of trait in a person whose doctoral academic focus was in the non-profit service sector fills me with hope for our future. Mark, I know you very little but the day Heather and I got to spend with you and Keely in Philly was one of the nicest times we have had here. Even though I didn’t give a toast on your wedding day, I now raise a virtual glass to two people who I think will help make the future a kinder and richer place for others to live in.
