Peace Love and Jack Johnson

Went to the Jack Johnson concert this weekend and he is just so awesome.  He makes me melt.  I also loved G-love (who opened for him).  Paula Fuga also sang along a few songs and her voice was amazing.  Jack is already a hottie, but I swear a guy that can play me a song like that is automatically 79% hotter.

Monday sucked. It's rainy today. But here is a bright spot from my day yesterday:

Little things like this and a song Jack played at the concert have me thinking about someone I loved. He will always be a part of me.

i carry your heart with me
by e.e. cummings

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)

I am so super jealous you saw Jack Johnson live. How amazing! And this is one of my favorite poems. I memorized and recited it in my poetry class in college :)

I'm trying hard not to be jealous and bitter that you saw Jack Johnson. I'm trying... but I'm an imperfect human. :-( You're so lucky! I love me some Jack Johnson.

I also love this poem- I love the part in In Her Shoes when Cameron Diaz's character recites this. It makes me cry every time! Love it!
