love after love

good morning.

i've been thinking about what i want to work on in 2013
and this is a bit of a preview.
i also anticipate some wood and perhaps some metal.
i'm excited for these prospects.
and here is a poem i heard this morning on on being called "love after love":

The time will come,
when, with elation,
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror,
and each will smile at the other's 

and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was 
your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.
