Opening Remarks: Hot Town, Summer in the City

Hot town, summer in the city, back of my neck getting dirty and gritty!

So goes the lyrics to a song by the Lovin’ Spoonful. It has been a hot month in Albuquerque and across the southwestern United States. But, as we like to say, “at least it’s a dry heat.”

Dry or not, when the temperature reaches 100 degrees it is nice to have air conditioning. I am glad I do! Still, summertime is my favorite time of year. I like the warmer weather and the time to relax a bit. I hope you are getting a chance to enjoy your summer.

Featured Article: Heaviest Wedding Ever

By Tom Gilbert - Copyright © June, 2017

June is traditionally a month for weddings. But not every wedding is traditional.

I had the pleasure this month of attending the wedding of my niece, Kelsey. She is an adventurous woman and she and her fiancé planned a wedding that was very different from most.

Brooklyn, New York was the city and the venue for the wedding was a heavy metal bar, Lucky 13. It was a very fun and different ceremony, one that truly rocked! In fact, they were billing it as the Heaviest Wedding Ever. The groom, Jeff, owns the bar and he and Kelsey went to great lengths to have a special ceremony that fit their personalities. So there was loud rock music, Harley Davidson motorcycles, tattoos and spirited personalities. They definitely did it their way.

Finding your soul mate and pledging to wed, to love and be there for each other are key hallmarks of marriage. Many people choose traditional ceremonies, but not everyone wants to do it in a “traditional” fashion. Who says, short of the legal requirements, that there has to be some kind of rule book on how to do it?

The same can be said for how you tell your life story. There are many ways to do it and you while there are some formats that work well, if you decide you want to be different and present your story in a non-traditional way, then go for it. What matters is that you do something to preserve the story of your life.

Over the years I have written about different ways to approach preserving your personal history. Read some of the life story articles here.
