What a great idea, Lynne!  (I'm not sure if I have this right, but I'll dip my toe in cautiously .....)


How do I love Jack?  Let me count the ways.
His radiant countenance, so sublime
The depths of the seas at home in his gaze
To the height, breadth, and width my heart can climb.
His lips so full, his hair like a raven
The measure of a country's greatness is its ability to retain compassion in times of crisis         ~~~~~~~~~Thurgood Marshall

The worst loneliness is not to be comfortable with yourself.    ~~~~~~~~~ Mark Twain

Thanks!  You got it!

Clumsy, awkward, yet in glorious in youth
