i carry your heart with me




Pics of us in Venice last weekend. This homeless guy was Liberace on the piano. Froggy had a great time, jamming with the Hare Krishnas, playing at the park, watching all the dogs walk by, and letting the sand slip through her fingertips. We stopped at our favorite book store, where they have a cat named 'Esma' who looks exactly like my childhood cat, Kricket. Froggy charmed everyone she met, and said "HIYYYYY! BYYYYEEEE" about 200 times. It was a great day.

Here's one of my favorite poems for Valentine's Day.

i carry your heart with me, by e.e. cummings

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

Oh my gosh - could she *be* any cuter!?! Kaylen is all about Hi and Bye too. Isn't it the best?

JCN - we love this hat. FD likes to pull it up so she looks like a smurf.

Casey - I was just thinking the same thing about Kaylen. They both have such kissable cheeks too!
