LOVE … because of it



You may have discovered these images in the WFOL 2023 Treasure Hunt Treasure this week.

They are, as well, part of the series Love, Because of It.

These pages illustrate Vincent and Catherine’s more intimate time together, measured in a romantic (gauzy but not overly graphic) way, accompanied by a favored poem.

More in that series can be found HERE.

Thank you for visiting today. I hope you’ll come back after Winterfest is over! 


I Had No Idea

by Tyler Knott Gregson

I had no idea
it would be
this much.
I had no idea
I could handle it.
I had no idea
how beautiful
it all

Love After Love


I Like My Body

by e e cummings


i like my body when it is with your
body.   It is so quite new a thing.
Muscles better and nerves more.
i like your body.   i like what it does,
i like its hows.   i like to feel the spine
of your body and its bones, and the trembling
-firm-smooth ness and which i will
again and again and again
kiss,   i like kissing this and that of you,
i like, slowly stroking the, shocking fuzz
of your electric fur, and what-is-it comes
over parting flesh . . . . And eyes big love-crumbs,

and possibly I like the thrill
of under me you so quite new

Catherine and Vincent in each other's arms in bed, gazing into each other's eyes.
