Two books influenced my humanist philosophy as an adolescent and young adult: the Museum of Modern Art´s photographic essay curated by Edward Steichen, The Family of Man, and the photographic essay inspired by Steichen 25 years later, The Circle of Life: Rituals from the Human Family Album with an introduction by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

Our lives are filled with special days, milestones. These are the days we want to remember. These are the days that add color and depth to the mosaic of our lives.

 

How do you wish to remember this day? 

What would you like to share with your family and friends on this day? 

Why is this day important to you?   

 

I am a Humanist Celebrant and Wedding Officiant, endorsed by The Humanist Society an adjunct of The American Humanist Association. Humanism is a philosophy of life that embraces democratic principles and affirms our responsibility as human beings to use reason and free inquiry to build a more humane society and improve life on this planet.

 

I commemorate life’s milestones in ceremonies that honor cultural traditions in a humanist service. I will create with you meaningful ceremonies which reflect your traditions, values, beliefs and our common humanity. 

 

Please explore this website to see how your ceremony can and will be a truly special moment in time for you and all who share with you.

Look to this Day 

by Kalidasa

Look to this day
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities of your existence.
The bliss of growth,
The glory of action,

The splendor of achievement,

Are but experiences of time. 
 

For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow is only a vision;


But today well lived makes yesterday a dream of happiness

and every tomorrow a vision of hope. 

Look well therefore to this day;

Such is the salutation to the ever-new dawn.

Your wedding ceremony is when you pledge to each other your commitment and love for one another.

WEDDINGS

THE little, timid, trembling feet 

Oh, should they strive to step alone.

BABY WELCOMING

Grieving is a natural process after the loss of someone close to you whether a parent, spouse, relative, close friend or beloved pet.

MEMORIALS

Every culture has a different way of honoring the passage from childhood to young adulthood or adolescence.
