  • When you see the Southern Cross for the first time
    You understand now why you came this way.

    Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

    A sculptor once said of his work:

    "It is like a voyage of discovery, like going
    somewhere no one has ever gone before, and that
    is when the going is good."

    Love should be like that.
