Love, exclusively mine...?

quick!  post the entry before ya lose power!

i noticed that a comment i left {raven, sorry} was posted twice, five minutes apart.  that'd be related to me, my computer flukes, and my dial-up.  oohps.

last night, i boiled a partial packet of angel hair pasta that i found deep in my cupboard of beans.  i mixed in some raw spinach (which slightly wilted from the heat of the pasta), some grape tomatoes, and then poured over it a mixture of sauteed mushrooms and a sliced jalapeno.  it was very good, and i had left-overs so i can enjoy it today too.

i've been reading "Necessary Losses" by Judith Viorst (mentioned that some entries back) which focuses on "the loves, illusions, dependencies, and impossible expectations that all of us have to give up in order to grow".  I can understand most of what I've read, even if some of the Freudian concepts are just a bit too much for me to get behind.  However, this poem by W.H.Auden cut me to the quick:

For the error bred in the bone
Of each woman and each man
Craves what it cannot have,
Not universal love
But to be loved alone.


  1. No worries on the dbl. comment. That poem is profound, one of those oh wow moments. (Hugs)Indigo

  2. I get the poem, man. But I really want some of that PASTA!

  3. speaks to the soul, that poem.
    I made a very similar pasta dish Tuesday evening.  Mushrooms, grape tomatoes, fresh spinach, a little garlic over whole wheat pasta.  

    Must be the weather.  ;)


Thanks for taking the time and effort to let your thoughts be known!
