Why write about love?

Well, there are many reasons.

For one, its something we all want. There aren’t many things on this planet that every person wants. Except maybe sex, but thats related to love. And yes, love means different things to different people, different cultures.

But thats what this blog is about. What does it mean to me, and to you? This is not an exercise in defining love, for that would be impossible, as love is an ever-growing, evolving essence. It changes as the people around us change, and even when we have found love, that love with that person is also evolving. In fact if love isn’t evolving, it probably means it is dying.

The second reason to write about love is because its complex. It is hard to understand, it is hard to measure, it is impossible to hold in your hand. Yet, when we have it, we know it, and we are in bliss.

So maybe this is a blog about bliss, and the role that love plays in bliss. In fact the most interesting thing about love and about bliss is that in order to create it usually takes pain. Why do some of our happiest moments come after times of extreme difficulty? Why isn’t there love without effort? Don’t look for me for answers, but perhaps you can look at me for thoughts.

Thats what I’m here for. Thoughts about love.
