I took the morning off and read a book.

Yeah, so those of you who know me, realize this isn’t exactly earth shattering news.  However, I have been working awfully hard this last month, and working half days on my so-called days off.  Thursday’s torching session left me all caught up on orders and with three new sets in reserve.  WOOT!  I am actually ahead for once.

On Monday I took my time reading my usual book/agent/publishing blogs and ran across this post on Author! Author!  Beren deMotier, author of THE BRIDES OF MARCH, guest blogs about her road to publication and why she ultimalty decided to self-publish.  The memior takes an inside look at a same sex couple who married in Mutltnomah County, Oregon in March of 2004, during the brief period of time, same sex marriages were legal.

After reading deMotier’s guest blog, I popped onto amazon, read the first chapter, and immediately ordered it.  The book arrived this morning.  Greg knew I was a goner as soon as he saw me open the amazon package.  Ohh, a new book.  New reading material (like I don’t have a to-be-read pile twenty books deep already).  I wasn’t disappointed.

Throughout THE BRIDES OF MARCH, I laughed with deMotier at the everyday trials and tribulations all families experience and was moved to tears as she took me through the feelings of finally being married and what the right meant to her and her family. And then what it felt like to have to it taken away.

As an artist, a former vagabond, and self-described hippy of sorts (minus the drugs), it’s hardly a secret I am a liberal democrat (though I rarely talk politics here).  I’ve always been for gay rights, was appalled when I saw signs advocating the passage of banning gay marriage on lawns of people I knew and loved in 2004 when the measure was on the ballot in Oregon, and was terribly disappointed when California passed prop 8 last year.  However, I can’t say I ever really understood what marriage meant or could mean to my gay friends.  This book changed that.
