I've heard all kinds of songs about love, many cliche, fake. Let's talk about love and being together forever, skipping through the meadows in the bright sunlight...and how many times I get to hug and kiss you whenever I want and how much fun we'll have. But let's get real. Fun isn't the word I want to use. It reminds me of "for fun" and love is serious. I mean, don't get me wrong. I have fun and it's fun to have fun with someone you love. :) What I mean when I say serious is...let's find what we seriously believe love to be. Let's seriously take a look at what it means to be, to love, to live in love with someone else. Now see, I may have no idea what I'm talking about since I have been and am currently a singular being. No plural efforts or expected forthcomings as of yet, but I believe I've seen it, not in it's perfect form, but in it's earthly form as a gift from God: not perfect, but of God. So, I'll say then, on that special day, let's dance through the minefields, sail in the storms, make terrible decisions, dodge the mines all the while consumed by the love of God inside of us that we give to one another..."we bear the light of the Son of Man."

"God created a most wonderful world to live in, if we could only see and enjoy. No two times of the day are ever alike, no two days, no two years. A most wonderful arrangement, yet, how boring it becomes to most of us. We do not see, we merely identify objects. This is a tree, there is another, they are all alike. Once we begin to see, we will live in a world which is ever fresh and new."
"To send light into the darkness of men's hearts - such is the duty of the artist."
-Robert A. Schumann
