Why do I love? Can any of us truly imagine a world without warm embraces, passionate kisses or tender caresses?
I love because it is the most universal of human emotions. The bond of kinship, of friendship, of togetherness. The eternal desire to weather storms together and not alone.
I love because I believe in something greater than myself, greater than the sum of the parts of my relationships. I love because it is truly divine.
I love without any choice in the matter. I am compelled with every fiber of my being.
I love, therefore I am (apologies to Descartes).
