As Nancy is about to leave for 3 weeks on her summer trip, I was thinking about the time we’d be apart and found a poem that touched me. I wanted to pass it along and wish you both a great trip. Looking forward to seeing you in Marfa. “I heard splashing on the boatHer bare feet And sensed in our faces The hungry duskMy heart swaying between herAnd the street, the roadI don’t know where I found the strengthTo free myself from her eyesTo slip from her arms She stayed, crying through rain and glassClouded with grief and tearsShe stayed, unable to cryWait! I will comeWalking with you.”—Miguel Otero Silva, Venezuelan poet and novelist, born in 1908.
