Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood ~ Nina Simone ~ My anthem.
Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within. ~ James Baldwin ~ Happy Valentine’s Day!
My parents, New York City, ca. 1963.
“Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does. Love is a battle, love is a war; love is a growing up.” —James A. Baldwin
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way than this: where “I” does not exist, nor “you”, so close that your hand on my chest is my hand, so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.
—Pablo Neruda, Sonnet XVII
