Or, as Woody Allen famously coined it in Annie Hall......lurve.

It may not always be pretty and it may not always be easy, but we keep coming back to it like crack addicts. We can't shut it out, we can't ignore it and we can't avoid it -- despite how hard we may have tried at one time or another. Because no matter how much pain, grief or frustration love has brought to our lives, it also brings moments like this.

And these are the moments that make it all worthwhile....

woody & diane
bicycle for two
kitchen floor
beers on the lake
casual stroll
newspaper in bed
gentle touch
rowboat nap
love is ageless
his & hers
sunset beach dance
morning routine
the drunk delightedly intoxicated carry-home

this is how it works...
you peer inside yourself.
you take the things you like and try to love the things you took.
and then you take that love you made,
and stick it into someone else's heart, pumping someone else's blood.
and walking arm-in-arm, you hope it won't get harmed.
but even if it does, you'll just do it all again.
