  • I want for nothing.
    not because I have everything.
    but because I have what I need.

    I wouldn't mind, however, a visit to Pittsburgh to see my sister.
    on summer nights we sit on porches.
    she sews her pointe shoes.
    and we drink wine from coffee mugs.
    and we talk about G_d in the form of love.
    we talk about our childhood in terms of the things we cannot recall.
    we talk about breath. and the chance you take when you trust.
    and the word unconditional.
