Love means you breathe in two countries.

I continue to have my breath taken away by the poems of Naomi Shihab Nye.  A selection of her best poems should be launched into space for alien civilizations to discover.  Here is a recording of “Two Countries” she made for a recent episode of the On Being podcast.  Try not to let the overwrought guitar music at the end ruin your experience.
