Notice to Our Readers: In the near future, we will be halting publication of new contentin the Significato Journal. It's been a lovely experience, but we have found that with limited time, we need to focus our efforts in new directions (which include book publishing). We'll be leaving some content on the site in an archived status. We'll move other content to our personal websites ( and (Kim's website is not ready yet)). When that process is completed, we'll send out a final email to our SJ subscribers and invite you all to subscribe to our individual subscription lists. More to come...

Outposts of Love

Feb 10, 2018

We have not yet met the outposts of love

We’re in those between days

sorta kinda sixty old

but not cataract crippled mind blank ninety old.

So in this interim

even though we still behave like toddlers

whining and crying for our own way sometimes,

I still love the shuffle of your slippers slapping

through the house,

your loud conversations on speaker phone with

god knows who,

the reheating of the tea kettle till it burns itself out.


Those are signs of you Here.

You always say good morning, hello, goodbye,

please and thank you,

You call me when it doesn’t seem necessary,

but all of these things make a life.

If they’re ever gone from me I want to at least know

that I noticed it all, was grateful for it all, and

recognized it for the beauty I could so easily overlook,

that I experienced and kissed to my heart, every day.
