given that light travels at 186,000 miles per second
and the moon is 238,900 miles from earth.
it takes less than two seconds
for the man in the moon to smile
and warm your heart
how fast, then, is the speed of love
when you smile at the person beside you
and they smile back
faster than a speeding bullet
even faster than Superman
this means that love is beyond super fast
and my smile is beyond super powerful
I’m putting my love cape on

Love it! Thanks Tio.
Ohhhh… Tio Stib—
I wish you could see SASSEM Sloth who comes to all cancer tests and treatments with me. He’s Teddy bear sized with soft Gray-brown fur and a slow gentle smile. She wears a soft fuzzy pale turquoise cape with sparkling LOVE written down it with iridescent sequins. Obviously one of your tribe!
One week I mistakenly left her at home. I wasn’t the only one who missed he(r)! Many folks asked where (s)he was—from registration to buses, from fellow patients to the doc himself!
Sending you some sparkles of love today too the love you will sprinkle along your path!
Delightful! I’m honored to the acquaintance of yourself and your lovable fuzzy companion. Thanks for your kind thoughts.
