The Embrace (a toast)
In the clasping of the body, arms which embrace, in the coming together is a unity that nothing can impair. That it is truly locked in time. Somehow the eternal has been grasped and time is not of the essence.
That there is a space for this oneness of divine souls, that this embrace is of sublime importance. That in the annals of created history this will be recalled. It will be a fixed event we can visit and be reaffirmed. It will have happened, have been, be and is.
For this event we raise our glasses and bless this union.
