January’s Index on New Phrases
Love is always right before our eyes. It is never further than the voyage of self-discovery.
The honest appraisal of self is never easy but the reward is when a common-placed thing or person suddenly, through acts of intimacy that have nothing to do with sexuality, inexplicability transforms and we can see clearly that its existence is nothing short of a God given miracle. To see something that has been viewed daily, and is complacently considered boring, become more beautiful than words could ever fully satisfy.
Love is not as hidden as fiction would like to sell, nor is there a difference between love and true love. There is only to love someone or to like someone which is not an awful thing. While that thunderbolt love is rumored to bestow, is not in some first glance that can amount to an infatuation. Rather that sudden surprise of absolute joy, is the realization that love was always right there, right before our eyes.
