Light, #8


“Perhaps it will seem to you
that the sunshine is brighter and that everything has a new charm. At
least, I believe this is always the result of a deep love, and it is a
beautiful thing. And I believe people who think love prevents one from
thinking clearly are wrong; for then one thinks very clearly and is
more active than before. And love is something eternal–the aspect may
change, but not the essence. There is the same difference in a person
before and after he is in love as there is in an unlighted lamp and one
that is burning. The lamp was there and it was a good lamp, but now it
is shedding light too, and that is its real function. And love makes
one calmer about many things, and in that way, one is more fit for
one's work.

– Vincent Van Gogh

    I *love* the love theme. So positive! Is that you guys live, or a photo in the mirror? Hmmmm, mysterious *and* lovely – you’re good – ;).

    You are reading some good books! I’d like to check a couple of them out. I like your Van Gogh quote very much, too.
    Sounds like you all had what we had. Glad you’re better now.

Tell me what's on your heart~
