This time our team went to Bali to meet a very warm and friendly girl, Anita. We connected with her right away as she is an extremely easy person to talk to and we absolutely love hanging out with her. The thing that excites us most about Anita, besides the fact that she's such an awesome person, was that she's marrying Graeme, who's a Scottish. AND, Graeme and his bestmen, were going to wear Scottish Kilts.
What is a kilt?
A kilt is a traditional Scottish garment. It covers the body from the waist down to the centre of the knees. The overlapping layers in front are called "aprons" and are flat; the single layer of fabric around the sides and back is pleated. Yes, most people would call it a skirt :p just don't say it in front of Graeme and his bestmen. The best part about wearing a kilt, is that you are NOT supposed to wear anything under the kilt. So, you wear the kilt, and off goes the underwear. You just gotta let it hang.
Funny as it is seeing and shooting Graeme and his buddies put on their really expensive kilts (each kilt costs around USD.3,000) and taking off their underwear, the whole 'ritual' reminds me of what we do when we get married. All of our lives we have this security that protects us, kinda like our personal space that we don't really let others in. We live our whole lives having this security, this place that we can 'hide' in when everything else is in chaos. But when we get married, we accept this new person into our lives, and we gotta remove this protection and security, and kinda have to just let it hang out there. It's definitely uncomfortable at first, because we are so used of having this protection, this security, this personal space that we keep to ourselves. BUT, in order to make a marriage work, that is exactly what you have to do, give up the personal space, trust our lives to the person that we are marrying with, and kinda let it.. hang.
So, my congratulations to the happy couple. May you have a beautiful journey together as you discover more of each other every day.
