The Art of Loving

“So oft have I invoked thee for my muse,
And found such fair assistance in my verse,
As every alien pen hath got my use,
And under thee their poesy disperse.
Thine eyes, that taught the dumb on high to sing,
And heavy ignorance aloft to fly,
Have added feathers to the learnèd’s wing
And given grace a double majesty.
Yet be most proud of that which I compile,
Whose influence is thine and born of thee.
In others’ works thou dost but mend the style,
And arts with thy sweet graces gracèd be;
But thou art all my art, and dost advance
As high as learning my rude ignorance.”

~ William Shakespeare Sonnet 78

A watercolor I recently made of my husband Jeff, along with the poem I wooed him with when we first met. I love this man! I love everything about him. His creativity. His strength. His beautiful mind.

    1. Aww, Thanks! Yeah, he’s one of the greatest things that has ever happened to me. Plus he makes me laugh at least 10 times a day, hard not to love that.
