The Perfect Love Letter

(click to enlarge)

" For we have come by different ways to this place.

I have no feeling that we met before.

No déjà vu .

I don't think it was you in lavender by the sea as I rode by in a.d. 1206 or beside me in the border wars.

Or there in the Gallatins, a hundred years ago, lying with me in the silver-green grass above some mountain town.

I can tell by the natural ease with which you wear fine clothes and the way your mouth moves when you speak to waiters in good restaurants.

You have come the way of castles and cathedrals, of elegance and empire. "
              - Robert James Waller
