From Pablo Neruda’s “Oda a la primavera”:
kisses from the lips of carnations,
roses in scarlet tides . . . .
your elfin hands and the hands
of the people make magic,
when on this earth
fire and love
caress your leaping
of all mankind.
It will be no sin to love you,
to stand by your side, your scent
and your abundance, without regret to love . . . .
In her spare time, Stephanie works full-time, and then some, as an attorney. She has published articles and delivered talks in arcane fields like forensic evidentiary issues, jury instructions, and expert scientific witness preparation. She attended law school near the the banks of the Charles River and loves that dirty water; she will always think of Boston as her home.
