Heart in my Pocket

My friend Archer shared this link with me today. It further shows the awesomeness of New York. Well, really just the wonder of the heart -- but it just so happens to be in NYC.

Garance Dore (she is French.... oui oui) has a blog that mainly follows fashion, but she also will sometimes post pictures from the streets around the shows she attends during fashion weeks. She took a picture of this guy (he happens to be French too.....oooo la la) sitting in the sunlight reading a book. She liked his shirt, and lo and behold, he showed her that his wife had embroidered a heart inside the pocket! He carries her heart near his heart.

If I had to paint a picture, or take a picture, to go along with one of my favorite poems by EE Cummings, it would be this heart sewn into his shirt. Read:

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in

my heart)i am never without it(anywhere

i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done

by only me is your doing,my darling)

....and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

"whatever a sun will always sing is you..."
