Portraits of Each Other

JamieBeck_KevinBurg_002

In line with all the sentiment I put into our anniversary picnic, mementos from our life together, I chose this Pablo Neruda poem, a souvenir from our time in Santiago, Chile, to read to Kevin over our picnic spread… a verbal anniversary card if you will…which now unfolds into our visual history with these intimate and simple snapshots of each other capturing this time alone – he & I on the beach with nothing but the sea.:

“I don’t love you as if you were a rose of salt, topaz,   

or arrow of carnations that propagate fire:   

I love you as one loves certain obscure things,   

secretly, between the shadow and the soul.

 

I love you as the plant that doesn’t bloom but carries   

the light of those flowers, hidden, within itself,   

and thanks to your love the tight aroma that arose   

from the earth lives dimly in my body.

 

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,   

I love you directly without problems or pride:

I love you like this because I don’t know any other way to love,

except in this form in which I am not nor are you,   

so close that your hand upon my chest is mine,   

so close that your eyes close with my dreams.”

Setting Sail

Walking aboard Puma’s Mar Mostro, the swiftest sail boat in the world manned by the world’s very best sailors, is nothing short of exhilarating. This handmade carbon fiber boat can soar faster than the wind as these 5 teams battle in the most competitive and longest ocean race around the world. Spending the day out to sea with these guys was exhausting, I have no idea how they run this boat so intensely 24 hours a day for up to 30 days straight.

Tomorrow they leave port and head out to sea on the next leg of the Volvo Ocean Race
