Love is all around

This is another case where I find something that tickles me, and I want to share it with you.

So what this says, is it true?

Love is an emotion. Does that mean it is impervious to logic, to reason?

I have been married three times, so I lean toward believing love erases common sense and makes you deaf to the advice of others.

Love wants what it wants, or something like that, said Woody Allen, as he explained why he had taken up with his step-daughter. Was this love, lust, or a form of child grooming and near incest?

Whoa! Too serious. Sorry, I didn’t mean to go there.

I do know, from being in love, there is no feeling like it, and when the hot emotion burns itself out, it is replaced by something calmer, more meaningful, almost spiritual.

Oops. Going too far in the opposite direction. I hope the above thought gives you a laugh and an opportunity to reflect on the love in your life.

  1. According to the NTSB, the Love Train has derailed more than any other train, leaving passengers dazed and bruised, some with broken hearts.

  2. I love (pardon the pun) to the reference above to the Love Train. A great allegory. While I generally agree with the poster above, based on much I’ve witnessed over the years, I’m still with the same bride after 37 years. It ain’t perfect, as they say, but we’ve managed. A longtime friend, who is still married to his first bride of almost 55 years had this to say when I was getting ready to be married….”a successful marriage is based on the triumph of habit over hate.” Took me a while to figure it out, but it finally sunk in. I’m guessing that those who are married multiple times simply couldn’t take the “hate” part.

    He also had this other pearl of wisdom…”During your honeymoon year, put a jellybean into a jar every time you have sex. After the honeymoon year, take one out every time you have sex. You’ll never empty the jar.”

    1. “Love is like playing bridge: if you don’t have a good partner, you’d better have a good hand.” –Woody Allen

  3. Unfortunately, too many of today’s young people (and a lot of us older folks) confuse sex with love. Then, when in a marriage the sex becomes commonplace, the feeling takes over that ‘the love is gone and now I’m trapped in a marriage with someone who bores me.’ Maybe that’s why so many young couples shack up — to see if they can stand each other once the bloom is off the rose.
