This week, Rob tells me:

Would you please go have a picnic after midnight in a secret garden? Or maybe wander out to the edge of nowhere and throw a birthday party for the sun? Or weave wildflowers in your hair and lead a sweet thing unto temptation with a seduction strategy plucked from a poem by Pablo Neruda? Please, Gemini, tear your eyes away from the terribly obvious and the numbingly familiar. Be willing to be as impractical as you've ever been. The weird probability is that you'll have a piercing insight about the bottom line while you're wandering free in a place that's far from the bottom line.

Interesting, particularly since this was shaping up to be a quiet "me week" anyway, mostly. I'll think on this.

I vote-
-lead sweet things into temptation. ;) though I prefer cummings or Bukowski to Neruda....

Re: I vote-
Yeah. I haven't read much Neruda. Bukowski's nice, and Daphne Gottlieb (do you know her? Otherwise I'll need to read you some) is wonderful.

Besides, didn't you say no leading you into temptation for a bit yet? :-P

Well I will lead you into temptation.
Will you come snuggle me tonight? I desperately need the company.

Re: Well I will lead you into temptation.
That sounds lovely. Absolutely.

There should be some poetry for snuggling, all temptation aside. =o]
