I claim this Spring, Spring of 2011, for my dear friend Federico. This Spring will be for him.
Every birdsong; every tender bud; every soft breeze blowing through evenings newly green;
To Federico, I would like to dedicate the daylight hours; the smell of warm concrete in the 
rain; the constellations of Taurus and Cancer; the holy pine with its healing shade, unbowed 
by the press of Winter. Be well Fede- the Spring and I, we need you…..
