  • We're all a little weird. And life is a little weird.
    And when we find someone whose weirdness is
    compatible with ours, we join up with them and
    fall into mutually satisfying weirdness - and call it
    love - true love.

    Is it possible that all relationships have existed for all time,
    and that there is nothing we can do to add or take away from them?
    *
    *
    Is it possible that if love is destined to exist between two people
    it will be there no matter what?
    *
    *

    Thinking about these possibilities gives me an increasing
    sense of peace about my friendships - I do not have to create love,
    *
    *
    I just have to BE love, discovering the full dimensions of the love
    that already exists.
