Everything there is to know

So this came in the mail today. A card that I ordered for Susan on January 22. Stupid slow post office.

I think that she knows everything there is to know now.


  1. i think so.

    frame that.

  2. Framing it is a wonderful idea, Magpie.

    It's a lovely quotation.

  3. I was listening to Maria Taylor today. The song Orchids made me think of you and what you wrote about poetry and friendship. I don't know if you're familiar with her music but it's a beautiful song..
    I won't get mad and I won't break in two
    Because I understand you
    Now take this change
    And let my clothes soak with rain
    As I study orchid blues

    And some can't live
    Unless they feed on fallen leaves
    And so you'll let me down
    To come alive
    When you comfort me

    I've watched you change
    I've heard your words rearrange
    Played back from the start
    And if I did teach you anything at all
    I hope it was to love with all your heart
    And lie open wide
    With imperfect symmetry
    And so you'll love like you
    And I will love like me

    And to be reborn
    They have to go to sea
    And so, angel, you will have to set me free (Maria Taylor-Orchids)

  4. I hope I didn't offend too many people this weekend - well not so many that they have all camisas de futebol banded together to isolate me from the world of blogging.
