well, a flurry of comments, not on the page but in my inbox. interesting. nobody wants to talk about love publicly?
so, let me expand on my post below for fear you'll think me a heartless woman
i do believe that love CAN. i think love CAN be transformative. that it can change lives, cross boundaries, unite people at our very cores. i believe that love can be the most powerful powerful thing in the entire world. i have experienced it.
what i no longer believe is this idea that love conquers all, or that love will always win in the end. yes i think it can and should. but often doesn't. fear is a more powerful motivator than love and often kicks love's ass. love is so powerful it is frightening.
love can only conquer all in the context of a committed choice to stand firm through the scaryness.
to recognize this power and this fear and choose to stay in one spot regardless.
