it seems like such a trite subject because I'm a jaded and grumpy person, but it really is the most beautiful and fundamental of emotions. so I started going through my old posts, looking for an image that represents 'love' to me - I had one specific image in mind, but I didn't know where amongst my many photos it was, and I ran across it so yay - and found a few other 'L' things along the way.
|this right here. this is love. I love this photo of the love of my life.|
again, is it trite to talk about your progeny as 'the love of your life'? no, never. when I was the age my son is now, I would have audibly, sarcastically, gagged at my own proclamation of love towards a child, let alone love for a child I had chosen to Have! but having loved his father more than I've loved any of my lovers for the brief 5 years (give or take) that we were 'together', and thinking I had never felt such love towards another human being in my life, and how big it was, that kind of 'romantic' love was very different than the way I love our (my) son. other kinds of love in my life are the love I feel towards my family (whether or not it's returned, because they are my people for better or worse); the love I've felt/feel for my pets, (who are also members of the family); and my love for longtime friends (my chosen family).
|I wonder if my kitties have loved each other?|
|I love this pain in my behind -|
we've been friends for 30 years, and are currently mad at each other.
|I love the LIGHT in this shot|
(not one I built, but a cool image I snagged from the interwebs)
|oh look - hearts made of wood chips. ok, not an 'L', but it works with the theme...|
|come see what everyone else is posting!|
