My wife and I were recently invited to a wedding to be held at the American Visionary Art Museum. We don't know the couple. They invited us because of the groom's creative marriage proposal at the PostSecret exhibit and we can't wait to attend.
Here is their romantic story as told to me by Rebecca Hoffberger, the founder of the AVAM.
For people who don't know, most of the secrets are displayed along the side of a circular staircase that gradually rises to the third floor of the museum. As the couple slowly ascended the stairs she read every PostSecret postcard. He knew she would because it had been her idea to attend the exhibit.
What she did not know was that earlier he had made a special arrangement with me to replace the last post card with a special one he had created just for her see.
When they reached the top of the stairs she read the final card, "I don't know if I believe in God, but I believe something Great brought you into my life. If you turn around I'll ask you to marry me... "
Rebecca went on to say that when the young woman turned around her future husband was on bended knee with an illuminated ring box holding a 6-carat diamond. She said "yes" with tears and to spontaneous applause from the other visitors who were hoping to witness a happy ending.
Say 'aww' please, ain't that just so sweet? It's this kinda things that make you sigh and smile :)
And, an excerpt of an interview with Ikuta Toma. I thought what he mentioned was quite true, friends don't have to meet everyday to prove each others' existance, right?
Even if they're not by your side now, even if you had just argued yesterday, you will still spend every day with your friends during your student years, right? It's so great. My high school friends and I were extremely close, but I can't see them every day, so I sometimes feel nostalgic about my student era. Despite this, we'll still agree to meet up very often. (Laugh) To me, friends are the people who can help me recover into being my very best self. To be able to naturally recover from things I dislike, or exhaustion, etc...then to help me recover my energy... Friends lead that sort of existence.
