“love actually” mixed media collage $50

These are my thoughts the Monday after Valentine’s Day — collected after a weekend of friend and family L-O-V-E.

I am struck most by the feeling that love is all around — and that opening myself up to deeply knowing those who are present or are yet to come into my life is an unlimited, ever-changing and unending source of fulfillment.

That’s my love story for today — for all time.


With my eyes closed, I know —

I know you —

By heart.

And yet.

There is still so much more —

To know.

And because my heart is open — you can be sure —

I can hold it all — every last drop of who you are —

And who you will become.
