I wrote recently that I covered my first wedding and funeral this week. I think things went well so I’m posting the links to those stories.
The first is from the medieval wedding. The parents of the groom were so thrilled with the story that they e-mailed me to say so. That made my day. And while I can’t say I’ll be sporting elf ears any time soon, it was really neat to see so many people get so into an era.
Yesterday, I covered the funeral of the local real-estate agent who was murdered. I was nervous about talking to her friends and family at such an emotional time. I pictured angry responses from grieving relatives, but was greeted by just the opposite. I’ll remember their willingness to share stories with a total stranger the next time I cover such an event.
