Letters to JZ – Part 23: Happy Monday

Hey super gorgeous baby monkey,

I had a super busy weekend……mmmmm……..okay, that’s not really true. It was a quiet weekend and I spent part of it pulling petals off flowers. Again. Ahhhhh, what can you do J. So, I was in Chapters reading an article on Joseph Gordon-Levitt and his movie Don Jon, and in it he referenced a poem by Jacques Prevert which is about two snails who travel to the country to attend the funeral of a leaf, however they take so long getting there that by the time they arrive it’s no longer winter but spring and the leaves have come back to life. Essentially it’s an allegory on the power of Now and doing the right thing at the right time. Given I’m a terrible procrastinator, it struck a chord….

So, when I got home I googled this chap and found not only his poems, but some really cool quotes, including this one:

“An orange on the table, your dress on the rug, and you in my bed, sweet present of the present, cool of the night, warmth of my life”

It’s a bit saucy, but I really liked the “warmth of my life” part. When I read it, I immediately thought of you J. You make me very happy and I feel very fortunate to have met you – thinking about you sparks this really warm feeling in the center of my body near my heart, and I feel like the luckiest man alive to have someone so special in my life J.

Back to the snails and procrastinating. I found this clip on Youtube which talks about making positive changes. It’s kinda fun and cute, so thought I’d share it with you:

And, on that note, I’m going to end it here but may write some more for you later. In the meantime, I’m sending you lots of warm thoughts and affection 🙂

Hugs and kisses,

Hi sexy handsome honey Booboo,

Thank you for writing to me again, as always I am super duper happy to hear from you 🙂 Not being too busy is good, that means you take your time to observe beautiful things in life that we normally would take for granted. You can always use the time to relax your body and mind 🙂

But when I have my free time, I stay home and be a couch potato. I am so glad you are so inquisitive, I think sometimes chapters is a great place to hang out. I really like travel and cook books 🙂

I really like the story of the two snails and the meaning behind it. But things are sometimes easier said than done. I am a terrible procrastinator too. So I try to make a checklist and put it up on a bulletin, I would look at it everyday to make sure I get everything done in time 🙂 maybe you can do that too, I really helps. If you don’t write things down, you’ll probably forget it forever lol

Thank you for sharing interesting and meaningful poems with me. The orange on the table poem does sound a little saucy but it is very sweet. I think of you all the time too, I really enjoy spending time with you. Every time I look at the cards you got me, it cheers me up after a long day of work. And how you remember I like poems/quotes, you would write something inspiring on the card. It means a lot to me honey because its so motivational. You are always so thoughtful and sweet 🙂 I am so much happier after meeting you, I can look forward to seeing you and spending a nice relaxing day with you is the best time of the week! I feel as lucky as you 🙂 So I guess we are both lucky to have found each other? Hehe I am sure it is.

Thank you for sharing the YouTube video too hehe she’s very funny, and I ended up watching her other videos.

I hope you have a good night sleep and I will see you soon!

Suspect you may be busy studying and/or working during these dates, but thought I’d give you a heads up anyway.
