Today we have a poem I’ve written about my wife. I ran this a couple of years ago and I am running it again today.
Tell your sweetie the truth about the good qualities they possess. Tell him or her in a direct and simple way that is consistent with your personality. In this fashion, you’ll make somebody happy, score points, and be believable.
Here is the poem. It is called “Poem About My Wife.”
With reasonable allowance
For awkward situations
My wife is quite straightforward.
If not always at first
People in time come to realize
The quality of my wife’s advice and skills.
My wife reflects on personal relationships
And tries to get them right.
My wife reflects on her responsibilities
And tries to be a good person.
A left-handed Jewish woman
My wife has no illusions about what people are
And the things they are capable of.

Above is a picture of some graffiti in Amsterdam that was taken by my friend Lisa Marangi. She lives in Amsterdam.
My on-the-record view of graffiti is that I am opposed to it. My off-the-record view is that I like it if it has some creativity.
If anyone has any good shots of graffiti in Houston, please e-mail me the picture. I’d be happy to run it. Or, if you do you own and think it has merit, pass that on as well.
