There is a Rose in Spanish Harlem

Soulmate's Garden 009i
Soulmate,

I cannot possibly express in words the gratitude which resides in my cardiopulmonary system.... it not only resides in the circulatory pump by which I am ensanguinated, but resounds within the alveoli that oxygenates my being.... from within the depths of my gastrointestinal tract it churns.... and from within the marrow of my axial skeleton it longs to break out and radiate onto you....

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, and so I will not even attempt to express this energy with inadequate utterances.... false prolixity.... impostors of what lies deep within myself!.... instead, I offer you these images of the ordinary which surround you, made extra ordinary by eyes which see the beauty and goodness of the extraordinarily ordinary things that you do.... and the goodly soul that you are.... you make my spirit defy the gravity of despair's primordial ooze and reach up to evolve to the light....

AJ: Hey AJ, POM is my childhood nickname and DLA is my last name... hence POMDLA. As for Soulmate, well, she's soulmate.... thanks for the thanksgiving greeting, hope you get a slice of turkey soon. It's only good if it's cooked right though, otherwise it's just dry and tasteless... meh...

Dennis Villegas: Hey Dennis, hmmmm.... you know, there's different kinds soulmates, and different kinds of passion directed at said soulmates... thanks for appreciating, I hope I was able to adequately convey the passionate gratitude I was trying to shower on Soulmate...

The words are very profound, Angelo, and the pictures are spectacular. You're a very talented photographer. I'm gradually learning how to use mine...yes, the lilies were a success!

Take care.
