Doing a Forever Thing

Most of the stuff we make is impermanent.

Projects come and go. Tweets and Facebook posts are ephemeral. Posts on Medium slip down the category list and disappear.

But last weekend, Emma and I did a Forever Thing – we got married.

A Forever Thing is different.

It can’t be edited or deleted a few minutes later. It won’t be forgotten, at least not by us, for as long as we both shall live. There’s no update, fix, or new feature to be rolled out next week.

That feels very unusual.

It also feels profoundly special.

So thanks to all those who made it a wonderful day.

And here’s hoping that Forever Things will forever help us keep everything else in perspective.
