I saw this tonight, and I’m not ashamed to say I cried. Since Buechner says to pay attention to our tears, I will. I pray that all my family and friends, my community, my city and neighbors – myself – will know this kind of free joy, celebration, such reckless eruption of undeniable life. And I love that this was at a wedding, a moment of beginnings and beauty and goodness.
May you dance. Free. Me too.
Oh – and I love how the (slightly elder) pastor/priest was getting her groove on too. Joy is infectious.
peace – and dance.

glad someone else joined me tonight.
I fell for it! Loved it. Played it a second time for the family.
loved this, Winn. thanks for posting it.
there's a community of friends that has something really, really good 🙂
Ellen, I think that's it – that's much of what it was that grabbed me. It wouldn't have been even close to the same if it was just one dancing.
In that case, I think you guys might like this: http://is.gd/1NMFN
