Best wishes to Will and Kate

It's always nice to see a fine looking couple with good teeth getting married so best wishes to the eldest son of the eldest son of a privileged family. And of course any young couple getting married today, the youngest daughter of the youngest daughter as well.

Some of the Australian newspaper writers gushed about the whole event, but the Age staunch writers gave a more perceptive analysis, such as by Michelle Griffin, showing that our relationship with the royal family isn't just about obedience and gush over spectacle and pomp. The bride and groom did look happy of course. The bride's sister nearly stole the show with her simple gown and her shooing of the little girls and boys in attendance.

Who represented Fiji at the event? I didn't see the President or PM there.

Thank you Kate and William-

Only the darkest of cynics would take pleasure in ridiculing you and William as you enjoy your day in the sun.
Your wedding is not the time to wax philosophically about the value of the monarchy or the costs attributed to your wedding ceremony and celebrations.
You and William have presented the perfect escape, if just for a few moments, away from whatever personal struggles grind the rest of us in our daily dance.
That step away from our realities has value way beyond the cost of the day.
Thank you for sharing part of your dream with us.
It often feels as if we live in cultures that continually find something wrong with everything, and everybody, within shouting distance of the one pointing the crooked finger.
Some find it necessary to denigrate the royal family, presidents, prime ministers, the cabinets, all members of government, unions, teachers, students, and of course, those that are unable to fend for themselves-
The poor, homeless, aged, sick are often portrayed as people taking from the system rather than contributing to it in some meaningful fashion, according to those who judge such things-
Your momentary transcendence from all the swirling of reality offers a pathway into that part of us that wants to feel what you are sharing with the world. A dream, a hope, a kind look, a fleeting bashful kiss, a hand reaching out to change a life-
The world would engulf us with its grayness of regularity without moments of fantasy that become as real, for moments, as anything else we experience. Without ceremonies that tie us to some sense of history we would ricochet off the walls of reality.
World cups, super bowls, lottery winnings will never reach in to touch the happy little parts of our hearts that scurry around looking for a way to cry in joy.
May your happiness wrap us all in the hope that there is more than what radiates off the front pages of the newspapers.
Thank you.
