Saturday Photo: Bridal Veil, for Memories

We were invited last weekend to the 40th anniversary celebration of a couple we've known for 30 years. Their very accomplished children organized an afternoon of good fellowship and good food at a small restaurant in Montreal's Plateau district.

Other friends also celebrated their 40th this summer, and we hit our 45th August 29 (yes, we were both children.) So now before all the leaves are off the trees--the Autumn Leaves Drifting by the Window, as the old song says--it's time to remember beginnings.

I took this picture in June, and used it for a screen saver most of the summer. As it happened, it was a very good summer for bridal veil--it cascaded everywhere--and its memory is as fresh as the smiles on the face of our friends when they reminisced about the way they met, so long ago.
