  • I Think I Love You

    By Emily Stern

    March 17, 2013 | 1:37 pm

    every time is


    complete

    it is neither divine
    or perfect,

    it is only what is
    and that is the
    best thing I have ever known

    that is.

    and i am in love
    All is divine,


    you...

    Memory is a multibillion-dollar enterprise these days. I am personally on my fourth PDA and angling for a fifth even sleeker, more efficient model. Reminder cards and scheduler programs abound. Capitalizing on human frailty, the memory industry offers compensation.
