We are delighted to share the happiness of our Hawaiian wedding day. We have known each other for 43 years and come to love each other deeply. The special day began with Ram Dass’s weekly community beach swim. Later, before sunset, as soft Maui breezes blew and the clouds turned rosy colors, we had a private ceremony in Ram Dass’s Haiku garden, exchanging vows, leis, and rings. In poetic language, Ram Dass married us to each other and to the Dharma, and offered his blessings to us, our families, friends, and communities. He asked each of us, “Do you take Jack/Trudy as part of your sangha?” We both wholeheartedly answered “Yes!” We are all sangha together, and now you are happily included.
In the past weeks we have received waves of good wishes from friends all over the globe—hearing our nuptial plans has made them smile. And here we are, newly wed, blessed and grateful. We hope this photo (taken by Richard Marks) will add another smile to your day.
Trudy and Jack
