1. “Vows” from Thinking about the Longstanding Problems of Virtue and Happiness by Tony Kushner
Conjunction, assemblage, congress, union:
Life isn’t meant to be lived alone.
A life apart is a desperate fiction.
Life is an intermediate business:
a field of light bordered by love
a sea of desire stretched between shores.
Marriage is the strength of union.
Marriage is the harmonic blend.
Marriage is the elegant dialectic of counterpoint.
Marriage is the faultless, fragile logic of ecology:
A reasonable process of give and take
unfolding through cyclical and linear time.
A wedding is the conjoining of systems in which
Neither loses its single splendour and both are completely
transformed. As, for example,
The dawn is the wedding of the Night and the Day,
and is neither, and both,
and is, in itself, the most beautiful time,
abundant artless beauty,
free and careless magnificence.
2. Summer and Austin have left their apartment for a house By Romie Stott
I meant to write a poem for your wedding
about super fluids. About quantized groupings
whose singular momentum pushes up and over containers –
about transmission of heat, creation of vortices,
the creation of h/m proportions of vortices
where h is plank’s constant –
a spun bucket that holds a dozen whirlpools.
I meant to write that you were aligned together
in the same quantum state,
and could not be contained. I meant to write
a poem of matter, of transition points –
of energy that transforms liquid to gas –
of boiling water at a steady temperature
as molecules leap into vapor.
They don’t use the term latent heat anymore.
I can’t use it to say you’ve changed states.
It was a long time building, only seeming
the same, like boiling water, as you transformed
into something that rises.
3. Science Mash Up – Carl Sagan, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Albert Einstein, and others
Lost somewhere between immensity and eternity is a tiny blue dot that we humans call home.
And yet our species is young and curious and brave and shows much promise. In the last few millennia we have made the most astonishing and unexpected discoveries.
We are constantly reminded that humans have evolved to wonder, that understanding is a joy, that knowledge is a prerequisite to survival.
Our little planet floats like a mote of dust in the morning sky.
All that you see, all that we can see, exploded out of a star billions of years ago, and the particles slowly arranged themselves into living things, including all of us.
We are made of star stuff.
We are the mechanism by which the universe can comprehend itself.
The world is so exquisite with so much love and moral depth.
We should remain grateful every day for the brief but magnificent opportunity that life provides.
The sum of all our evolution, our thinking and our accomplishments is love.
How on earth can you explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as love?
Put your hand on a stove for a minute and it seems like an hour.
Sit with the person you love for an hour and it seems like a minute.
A marriage makes two fractional lives a whole.
It gives to two questioning natures a renewed reason for living.
It brings a new gladness to the sunshine, a new fragrance to the flowers, a new beauty to the earth, and a new mystery to life.
