Quote of the Day!

and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

E.E. Cummings

Edward Estlin “E.E.” Cummings (October 14, 1894 — September 3, 1962) was an American poet, painter, essayist, author, and playwright. His body of work encompasses approximately 2,900 poems, two autobiographical novels, four plays and several essays, as well as numerous drawings and paintings. He is remembered as an eminent voice of 20th century poetry.

A few years ago I came across an old bookstore on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. To my surprise, they had a first edition e.e. cummings collection of poetry for $15! What a treasure!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday wherever you are in the world!
All My Best,
Jill

P.S. GhostInTheWalls gave me a wonderful rendition of I Carry Your Heart. @ http://youtu.be/-PqSZzmUMHM
