The new Apple watch

The new watch by Apple was unveiled yesterday and while it has many features and seems quite cool, the thing that got me the most was the heartbeat feature. This phone will sense your heartbeat and send a signal to someone of your choice and they will be able to feel your heartbeat against their wrist. Maybe some people might think that's creepy but I found it endearing.
I thought it was romantic. What I wouldn't give to be able to feel John's heartbeat. We'll never be able to share that. And I felt sad.

Had some slides developed

I found an envelope of slides while I was going through old photographs and dropped them off at Walgreen's to be developed and put on a DVD. It was fun to see what was in there. Based on some of the photos I figured these were from Spring/Summer 1984. There was a picture of John in there. It's not very good because I wasn't very good at taking pictures back then so the focus is fuzzy.
But it's still John. I'll take it. This was 30 years ago, which would make John 41 years old.

Sonnet XVII by Pablo Neruda

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,

in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
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 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.

I love that last part.

Happy Days

These were taken in the Poconos at that honeymoon place at various times. We went there often. It was close to home and just plain fun.
