40th Anniversary of the death of Pablo Neruda
Pablo Neruda - If You Forget Me
Browsing around Instagram for photos of Fashion Week and other work related tidbits, I came across a quote from the poem If You Forget Me by Pablo Neruda. This poem resonated with me for several reasons. When I was younger, I likened my reaction to the way I was treated by others to a tennis ball hitting a wall - the harder you hit the ball, the harder it's going to come back at you.
Coincidentally, yesterday was the 40th anniversary of death of the Nobel Prize winning poet, sited as "the greatest poet of the 20th century..."In honor of Pablo Neruda's death, and as a personal message, I thought I would share more than the excerpt of the poem that is floating around Instagram. See below for the full poem, If You Forget Me. It is a beautiful message that starts harshly but ends softly.
