I am still without a post to write. (Or, for that matter, a satisfactory pseudonym. A current work-in-progress.) In the moments between the physical, present and all-consuming work of child-care I have been indulging in profound and vague creative moods, thoughts and sometimes even entire sentences. But for the moment they are not coalescing into the sort of paragraphs that would fit here.
Luckily another writer, the writer - Shakespeare himself - wrote some perfect words... on the subject - love. These beautiful words are the ones that regularly haunt me throughout my experiences, witnessing and philosophies of love:
Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O, no! it is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
