ACROSS the street I notice a man dressed all in black and wearing dark glasses that concealed his eyes. He just pulled up sharply on a motorbike.
He starts reaching into a kit bag just six feet away from the hundreds of couples waiting in line. I tense up thinking after the events in Norway last weekend, because no one who’s hated by extremists can afford to take chances these days.
He looks at us all with an expression that’s hard to read and then he pulls out a huge Nikon camera and starts photographing the happy crowd. “
Congratulations!” he shouts and we all answer together, “Thank you!”
Then he drives off into the traffic smiling. As Bono put it, it’s a beautiful day.
