harmonia macrocosmica

I am missing you, and thinking of you very much, but feel the need to take a bit of a breather. I hope all is well with you. Yours, with all my love - Belle
Therefore the love which us doth bind,
But Fate so enviously debars,
Is the conjunction of the mind,
And opposition of the stars.

from, The Definition of Love, by Andrew Marvell
