desire

Hi again,

I hope your week is going well. Today I share with you a beautiful poem by Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca (translated by a dear friend).

Warmly,

Genni.

Desire 

“I desire

only your warm heart,

and nothing else.

My paradise a field

without mockingbirds

or lyres,

with a gentle stream

and a little fountain.

Without the wind’s spur

on the frond,

or the star that wants

to be a leaf.

A huge light

that was

the firefly of another,

in a field

of broken stares.

A clear repose

and there our kisses,

loud polka dots

of the echo,

would open far away.

And your warm heart,

nothing else.”

healthful valentine’s day meal

Hello Readers,

This week on Wellness Wednesday I am sharing a simple Valentine’s Day meal.  Combine cooked quinoa, garbanzo beans, and baby beets to make a festive dish. A kale salad with a zesty ginger (aphrodisiac:)) dressing compliments the baby beets’ sweetness. Round everything out with a lovely (yet cost efficient) red wine from the Languedoc-Roussillon region in France. Whatever your plans may be, have fun and be well!

With love,

Gen.
