In lands I never saw -- they say
Immortal Alps look down --
Whose bonnets touch the firmament --
Whose sandals touch the town --

Meek at whose everlasting feet
A myriad daisy play --
Which, Sir, are you and which am I
Upon an August day?

Emily Dickinson
August

    Would you feel desperately depressed if you didn't have any wedding dress to wear? The answer is no for me, because I saw my mother kept her wedding gowns for many years, but she still had an unhappy marriage. That influences me and let me learn a lesson which is life matters, not that you-only-wear-for-one-day dress. Did I ruin girls' dream of being a one-day-princess in the wedding? I am sorry, but it's very important to focus on the marriage life, not live under the control of the commercial society. I mean we shouldn't feel sorry if we don't have a wedding or can't afford a wedding dress. And besides, if I have money, I would like to spend it on something more practical.
