Love is so very much more than an experienced emotion. It is a universal force of being. It cannot be destroyed. At times it might seem to us that this happens, when we feel that other forces overwhelm us. But even then - especially then - love transforms itself, finds new forms to replace those forms which, sometimes for reasons which are difficult for us to understand at the time, it no longer needs. No, love cannot be destroyed. But it can be transformed. And in that process of transformation it burns even brighter.


  1. How much solace is in these seven lines! And how much understanding of love as being more than an emotion. And the shell expresses so much of what the text describes: we might see the shell as being 'empty', but its open form is that of a receptive vessel which echoes the human heart.

    1. David, thank you for your words, which are in themselves words of love. ♥
