  • Space Pen

    Space-pen

    Designed in 1965 for NASA, the space pen will “write upside down, under water, over grease, in freezing cold, boiling heat, and in outer space.” Of course, the Russians just gave their astronauts pencils. But a No. 2 won’t wow the crowd at a cocktail party, friends.

  • Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair

    Twenty-love-poems-and-a-song-of-despair

    by Pablo Neruda An excerpt from one of my favorite poems, “Tonight I Can Write” “I no longer love her, that’s certain, but how I loved her.
    My voice tried to find the wind to touch her hearing. Another’s. She will be another’s. As she was before my kisses.
    Her voice, her bright body. Her infinite eyes. I no longer love her, that’s certain, but maybe I love her.
    Love is so short, forgetting is so long.”
