Earlier this year I was asked to give a TedX Sonoma County talk. I used the opportunity to tell the a story of love, law, limits and botched sign language. This is the story of my "San Francisco wedding" – and the particular moment in time it inhabited.
I am grateful to the organizers, volunteers and crew of TedX Sonoma County. The other speakers were incredible, and you should check out their talks (and poetry!) by going to YouTube and searching on "TedX Sonoma 2017". And I'm very grateful to the Mesa Refuge, where I did a writing retreat in 2016. I had intended to compile sermons for a possible book. Fail. But instead I wrote new things, including the first versions of this story.
