How do I love thee?
Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth
and breadth and height
My soul can reach,
when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being
and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level
of everyday's
Most quiet need,
by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely,
as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely,
as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with
the passion put to use
In my old griefs,
and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love
I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,
-I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life!
-and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee
better after death.

- Elizabeth Barrett Browning,
Sonnet 43

In literature as in love,
we are astonished

at what is chosen
by others.

- Andre Maurois

There is always some
madness in love.
But there is also always

I really like fresh-baked bread. It makes me giddy.
My bite is bigger than my bark.
I am the epitome of imperfection.
I live my life not in the eye of the storm,
but in that place to the left where all hell breaks loose.
My philosophers are poets.
My truth may be fiction.
I dislike the ordinary.
I pray before I go to sleep.
I never make my bed.

I LOVE:

My amazing son,
My Sailor (ret.),

Plaid skirts and dresses,
the 1940s,
Starbucks peppermint mochas,
Dorothy Parker,
Dirty-water dogs in NYC,
The smell and taste of ocean air,
And how absurd life can be ...
But not in that order.
