The Wedding Picture

Mom and Dad's wedding picture frames a glass-covered black and white frozen moment with warm smiles for invisible cameras. He in his WWII uniform of a first class private Republican with recent patriotic death technology experience. She in a white satin dress, veil innocently pulled back, rosy, more democratic, cheeks even black and white monotheism cannot fully suppress. And, I am in there too, on their first day of my realistic political and biological chance to become together with who we are together this morning in this home in this town in this State in this Nation on this Earth In this time of climate health and pathology and spiritual health longing to belong and economic health as probably less hoarded wealth and political health and supremacist pathology and mental health and issues, crisis, opportunities of Yang wealth and risks of not yet enough restoring Yin-Matriarchal health. This white satin laced bride and this uniformed groom smile together in black and white monoculturing wedding pictured, where white carries the main Yang history while black was lack of negative information, understory, They too had been understory health potentials when my grandparents, matriarchal and patriarchal, smiled without black and white cameras through their pre-WWI wedding days. On back through unrecorded 4D polyculturing histories of full-color wedding days. On back to before patriarchal and matriarchal commitment smiles, invested in future cooperative economies and, preferably, synergetic family politics, relationships and transactions of all nutritional varieties, had ever thought of public wedded vows to love and cherish potential Elders in Her EarthMother Womb. Frozen moments restoring new climate potentials through cooperative commitments to future lives, their health, our health, Elders' health potential of wealth all together in this one black and white wedding picture frame.
