Love means different things to different people.
It can be kind, life affirming and caring or it can be heart breaking, suffocating and used as a battering ram.
Folks say pets don’t love. Yet whatever that voo-doo that they-do, it is often sweeter, truer and more agender-free than the forced thing masquerading as love that blights so many relationships.
So many marriages where ‘love’ turns to bile-filled hate in court.
Surely real, true love never dies…or cheats? Or keeps the kids away from (a loving) dad?
Maybe we’ve all been had and it really is just a fairy tale construct invented to sell things the way diamonds and champagne were cleverly marketed.
Maybe love today is really just physical tingly bits mistaken for love, or it’s ‘you’ll do for now…until something better comes along.’
But I’m just a dumb editor.
Folks…(poignant stare at screen)… WHAT IS LOVE???!!!
