pick me" by jonathan b tucker.
the poem grabbed me by the collar and slammed me into a wall. it was easy to relate to as most of us have either seen jerry mcguire or gray's anatomy. the rom-com cliche of of wanted to be loved for yourself and having the person you're interested in choosing ....well, you. so...read the poem - it's by a young dc poet and i would love to see performing.
so...back to the day. as many have said, to me the day is to be lived all year 'round. never pass a day without telling those that you love about your love. gather up lots of kisses and hugs to sustain you through the tough times. remember that tough times may call for extra love but it is easy to forget that good times still call for that love. love yourself.....yeah, i tried and there is not a way to say that without sounding dirty...so do that too if you are so inclined. do something completely cheesy and hokey (and other funny made up words) to take yourself out of your comfort zone. (i wrote a letter)
the girls....this weekend. there is some of my love on paper (so to speak) - this shot is untouched except to open the raw file in lightroom. sure, it's a bit blown out and the circles under their eyes are showing and stuff...but, it cries love to me. love for each other and love for me to pose so sweetly.
hope you have the beautiful day of your dreams.
