The above picture is a mulberry tree I drew for my cousin Sarah’s wedding invitations. The wedding itself was a wonderful, magical event — unlike any I had ever attended. All those who plan on inviting me a wedding in the future, please take careful notes:
– They fed us barbecue cooked over an old chuck wagon
– They filled the grounds with tiny fire pits and dusty wingback chairs
– The Ring-bearer came down on a zip-line, wearing a Jedi robe
Even better were the gifts for guests. Women were all given pashmina shawls to keep warm into the night. Men were each given a handmade tobacco pouch and new pipe. Being a master of the Pretentious Arts, I was asked to draw instructions on how to pack and light a pipe:
Congratulations, Sarah and Jake. You kids deserve every happiness.
