Publisher's Letter

In Gratitude for My Amazing Wife

As many of you know, I’m a talkative guy, yet when it comes to describing my wonderful wife Asta, I become tongue-tied. So in honor of this month which celebrates love, I decided to create a Valentine for her using a poem I wrote for her many years ago. We’ve been married for 15 years now, have a wonderful 11-year-old son Erik, and it just keeps getting better.

To Understand
what is love
where is love
who is love
how to love

I understand
you understand
we understand
closer to love

to understand
try to understand
listen to understand
always open
to understand
closer to love

we must understand
we have to understand
fight to understand

and when I understand
who you are
what you are
how you are
where you are
I am closer to love

and understanding
takes patience
and wisdom
and love

do you understand?
do I understand?
how to understand!

May all the love in your life continue to grow.
In peace, love and laughter, Joe.
