Happy Valentine's Day to all my friends and family. Not my favorite holiday (that would be July 4) but I wanted to share, again, my favorite poem.
“This paper boat”
Carefully placed upon the future,
it tips from the breeze and skims away,
frail thing of words, this
so far to sail. And if you find it
caught in the reeds, its message blurred,
the thought that you are holding it
a moment is enough for me.
- Ted Kooser, 13th Poet Laureate of the United States
In the top 10 of my favorite days of the year is Puczki Day which is tomorrow!! YAY! I have to limit myself to one but oooh do I savor that one!
The rest of my news for this week is my brother, sis-in-law and their kids are coming for a visit from Seattle and I haven't seen them since November. We Skype and chat on the phone but I really need to gets some hugs in.
