sight, hearing, touch, smell, taste. it’s easy to recall the way each of our 5 senses were engaged on the day/night of Julia and Irfan’s mehendi celebration. The vivid colors of the women’s saris painted against green grass, the sound of prayers and readings by Irfan’s mom, the blessings spoken over the beloved couple by the ones who care for them most, the touching of money, sweets, skin – all done intentionally with meaning, the smell of perfume, henna, rose petals, and chicken tikka masala, and the taste of hot indian food, good beer, and mango lassi. It was heavenly, and that is only what was going on on the outside. The 5,000,000 senses of the heart and soul were too much to describe. Even though we were meeting them for the first time, we fell in love with Julia and Irfan, and found ourselves in a state of being high on beauty and freedom and love of that day. it was wonderful, and anyone who wasn’t there missed out. let us share it with you. :)
