J'ai rêvé de toi sweet Pea! Recueil : La part du rêve (1863) Depuis que je t'ai vue, ébloui par l'éclair, Mon œil s'est voilé d'un mirage ; Je regarde sans voir, ou je ne vois dans l'air Flotter qu'une forme, ta douce image ; Le jour, tout éveillé, je songe ; et, dans la nuit, Comme un feu follet qui se lève, Cette image, la tienne, apparaît, et me suit Au plus profond de mon âme et de mon rêve. Henri-Frédéric Amiel

Happy Birthday my dear, dear friend. I miss your bright, true smile, our laughs, our friendship. This day brings me joy and tears every year--as I celebrate the birth of my oldest daughter Katie, who it turns out was meant to share your special day. As I light a candle for her birthday, I also light one for you. My last memory of you was celebrating your 35th birthday with afternoon tea at the Fairmont on Nobb Hill. How I cherish that time I was able to spend with you. Your spirit is always in my heart.

I lived with Karen for 6 weeks in Paris (1991). My friend from college, Jen Guilbert Shaffer, was friends with Karen iand she invited me to stay with them in Paris. Karen became an instant friend. She made me laugh and was so easy to get along with that I felt like I had known her for years. We had so many great times together in Paris! I will never forget that happy time and I will never forget Karen. A beautiful, giving, funny, incredible person who touched my life in so many ways.

Annabel Lee - Poem by Edgar Allan Poe ============================== It was many and many a year ago, In a kingdom by the sea, That a maiden there lived whom you may know By the name of ANNABEL LEE; And this maiden she lived with no other thought Than to love and be loved by me. I was a child and she was a child, In this kingdom by the sea; But we loved with a love that was more than love- I and my Annabel Lee; With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven Coveted her and me. And this was the reason that, long ago, In this kingdom by the sea, A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling My beautiful Annabel Lee; So that her highborn kinsman came And bore her away from me, To shut her up in a sepulchre In this kingdom by the sea. The angels, not half so happy in heaven, Went envying her and me- Yes! - that was the reason (as all men know, In this kingdom by the sea) That the wind came out of the cloud by night, Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee. But our love it was stronger by far than the love Of those who were older than we- Of many far wiser than we- And neither the angels in heaven above, Nor the demons down under the sea, Can ever dissever my soul from the soul Of the beautiful Annabel Lee. For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams Of the beautiful Annabel Lee; And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes Of the beautiful Annabel Lee; And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side Of my darling- my darling- my life and my bride, In the sepulchre there by the sea, In her tomb by the sounding sea. =============================
