On Sunday, one of my very favorite authors got married in an unplanned, spur-of-the-moment wedding. For those who don't know him, Neil Gaiman is an incredibly creative and unconventional author who has delved into the darkest, longest-forgotten corners of literature and come back with a cornucopia of knowledge and references. I love him because every word he writes is new and innovative but conscious of the depth of its roots and the imagination of its audience.
Naturally, someone so unique could not have a conventional wedding. And while we of the blogosphere are clearly devoted to planning, sometimes almost religiously, it can be nice to remember the attributes of spontaneous declarations of love, witnessed by only the people you really care about: http://journal.neilgaiman.com/2011/01/yes.html.
