dear Gary & Beth,

Happy anniversary! altho distance keeps me from attending this glorious event I am celebrating you & your contributions to the greater good. From Bolinas to Brunswick to Berwick we love the Gulf of Maine! Here are Roque Dalton's words that want to be said on this occasion:

Like you
I love love
The sweet smell of things
The sky blue landscape of a February day.
And so my blood boils up
And I laugh thru eyes that have known the buds of tears.

I believe the world is beautiful
And that poetry, like bread,
Is fo reveryone.
And that my veins don't end in me
But in the unanimous blood of those who struggle
For love, life,
Little things,
Landscape and bread,
The poetry of everyone.

w/ love,
jenifer van deusen
