Heartfelt #5

Made by a student when I was teaching . . . there’s something deeply compelling about a heart.

You, Beloved,
Who are all the gardens
I have ever gazed at, longing.

—Rainer Maria Rilke

Heartfelt #4

I found hearts everywhere in art . . . this one in San Antonio while traveling….  bought it for my husband.

If ever two were one, then surely we.

—Anne Bradstreet

Heartfelt #3

I find hearts constantly in nature . . .

If thou must love me, let it be for naught
Except for love’s sake only.

—Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Heartfelt #2

I kept finding hearts in unlikely places… on a tree in a forest while hiking.

“I love you,
Not only for what you are,
But for what I am
When I am with you.”

—Roy Croft

Heartfelt #1

I never meant to start collecting hearts …. they just seemed to find me.

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it

–e.e. cummings
