“Things I Would Like to Do with You.” is now available! It’s eco and lovely. Get your copy here.
Joanne Woodward on living with Paul Newman,
“Sexiness wears thin after a while and beauty fades, but to be married to a man who makes you laugh every day, ah, now that’s a real treat.”
A few Things I would like to Do before I Leave You.
I would like to go camping with you and delay our return, twice,
I would like to bike tour with you,
I would like to spend too much time with our friends and our families along an endless table on an endless lawn, with you.
Yes, I would like to make love to you.
I would like to work together but apart with you at a café in the cool shade with Red dog napping, below.
I would even like to miss you,
I would like to do things without you.
I would like to finish and then have sex with you again, after a cuddling pause.
I would like to make you breakfast in bed, once in a long while.
I would like for you to make me coffee in bed, often.
I would like to road trip to hot springs with you and camp the night in a yurt by the river.
I would like to cradle our first child with you, and talk over how to discipline her in a way that inspires her when she is older,
I would like to laugh with you, most importantly.
I would like to cook with you, read in a hammock with you,
I would especially like be bored with you,
I would like to be angry with you, and learn to walk away, and learn to forgive you, and learn to be forgiven by you.
I would like to go to sleep each night by thanking you for being with me,
And wake each morning pleasantly surprised you are in my life,
I would like to feel admiration for the littlest things you do and how,
and how you look others in the eyes, openly, sparkling with affection, but so strong.
Forever is not important to me, but this is.
