carrying a heart

Someone I saw yesterday had the first two lines of this tattooed on her back, and I just had to post it...

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)
i fear
not fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

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

Something to make me happy...

From the instructor feedback from my last course:

Thank you so much for these reflections. They were a joy to read during the semester, and to review carefully as I assembled the grades. The only thing I can say is that part of me wishes you were a Master’s student, because you are doing such rich intellectual work.

...you were one of the most active, engaged students throughout the semester, lending us your insights and your poetry. You gave solid insight, and worked at a level of engagement that sometimes exceeded the Master’s students. It was a joy to have you in the class, and I am happy to record an A+ for your performance.

Wow. That just made my day, and is a lovely counterbalance to some of the stuff I posted about earlier this month.

He recommended that I develop one of my reflection papers for publication! I will probably post the original here for recommendations first.
