My principal critic, a well-trained and accomplished graphic artist, AKA my friend and favorite first-cousin, suggested that the sepia and old-film look to the video clip was especially appropriate given the number of years--decades, really--that separate me from the principal player. As for me, I got the most pleasure out of the time I spent fidgeting and fumbling trying to achieve the look I wanted. (The music is from "Il Postino.")

Jenny Kiss’d Me
BY LEIGH HUNT

Jenny kiss’d me when we met,
Jumping from the chair she sat in;
Time, you thief, who love to get
Sweets into your list, put that in!
Say I’m weary, say I’m sad,
Say that health and wealth have miss’d me,
Say I’m growing old, but add,
Jenny kiss’d me.
