Hey DB it's been awhile. I've been stuck in the Facebook quicksand lol. First, I hope you're ready for the transit of Venus on the 5th (it's all over my FB page) Second, after reading this prose I wondered about what gets caught in the web that "cruelty weaves in our minds". Made me think. Also, finding that love in others when you look for it, well - I agree, such could define Love. if you're focused on something it's almost inevitable that eventually you'll find what you're looking for. Like the person who feels they are ill, but doctor after doctor tells them they're fine - he keeps searching until he finds that one doctor who'll tell him what he needs to hear - that he's ill. Even if he's not. Finding love can be something like that, I'd say. Namaste <3

I think it's sad that folks don't allow theirselves to love or feel loved....such a waste of life as far as I'm concerned.What a better world it would be if people would allow theirselves to feel love versus hatred.
