I inspired a poem! (and a pretty cool one at that!) I think I was a buck-toothed, frizzy-haired, incurably romantic 13-year-old when I put that on the to-do list for my life. I'm still incurably romantic, but this bit of wit from Jed Platt (whom, by the way, I have never met but think I might like to) was just pure fun:
Tone on tone
Like a triple scoop cone
SaraJoy and her amazing Technicolor vocabulary
Since launching this little adventure, I've had offers of tango lessons (in the Ukraine), personal tour guides in D.C., restaurants hiring waitstaff in Texas, and suggestions of several appropriate waterfalls (not to mention partners) for #19.
I guess it just goes to show that the power of synergy may truly be our greatest resource. In the words of Bloody Mary (whose voice in my head still carries the amplified dust signature of a half-century-old phonograph), "you got to have a dream. If you don't have a dream, how you gonna have a dream come true?"
