    Honestly you blow my mind every time. Unreal… real… this is just really coincidental for me, as I had a treasured piece of art that I later gained negative associations with, just brought it out again yesterday, and made up my mind to see it with fresh eyes… it’s like this poem embodies it in such an unexpected way. Amazing. I love your poetry.

    I wonder if you know the English meaning to the question I asked, but perhaps, I was way ahead….


    • Forgive me. I’m not sure what you’re referring to. You’ll have to explain. But maybe I understand now. You’re asking when is the wedding, yes, so you can buy your hat or outfit to it? I wish I could tell you it was tomorrow or yesterday. But, unfortunately, you don’t always get what you want. So only time will tell. And hopefully it brings good news one of these days. Thanks again for your support!
