#10 Soul Sister

Today is my sister's, Guillermina, 35th birthday. Those lucky to have met her, already know how special and unique she is. She is not only my sister, she also my longtime best friend, an awesome mother, a passionate singer and funny performer.
I don't really need to tell you how much I love her, she already knows... however, this pattern and this poem are my gifts to her, Happy Birthday Guille! Opy

                               I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart)
                               I am never without it (anywhere I go you go, my dear;
                               and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling)
                               I fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet)
                               I want no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
                               and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
                               and whatever a sun will always sing is you

                               Here is the deepest secret nobody knows
                               (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
                               and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
                               higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
                               and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

                               I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)

                               E. E. Cummings

PS: Yes! it is from the movie "In her Shoes", didn't you cried when you get to this part?


  1. Querida Florencia,

    No me conoces, pero soy un ex-compañera de Dow de tu hermana Guille, me llamo Patricia y vivo en Alicante España. Me encontré de nuevo con tu hermana en Madrid la primavera pasada y hoy, entre felicitaciones de cumpleaños y comentarios sobre hermanas nos dió tu dirección de www. Me encantan tus diseños, muy originales y los comentarios muy sentidos y auténticos. Tienes una fan más! Espero tengas un buen cambio de año. Saludos,

  2. Mil gracias Patricia! Vos tambien, que tengas un buen 2012! Saludos :)

  3. I cried all the way through that movie, and E.E. Cummings was the icing on the cake for me! Love the pattern, and the colour scheme really makes me smile :)
