San Diego Mayor Supports Gay Marriage

This is the most touching and moving speech by a politician.

**Warning** This is a tearjerker. It really is.

Sonnet XVII: Pablo Neruda | A LOVE POEM

A client gave this to me and while she read it to her husband in my office I burst into tears!! It was a beautifully worded piece and wanted to share it with you all.

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of
carnations the first shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as
the plant that never blooms
but carries itself the light of hidden
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the
earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or
when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or
So I love you because I know no other way.

but this,
where I do not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.

I just loved it as it reflects the darkness that turns into light for our couples. It certainly has happened for Mike and me. This really spoke to me.

Happy Rosh Hashana September 12, 2007

In the Jewish Religion it is Rosh Hashana which means "a new year". I invite everyone to use this time to renew and refresh your lives as I do each Jewish New Year.

Here is a funny youtube about Rosh Hashanah.

Warmly, Joe Kort
