Amo Amare Amavi Amatus?

The sun sets on another day…

I think the sunset is very relaxing. It seems to pull you in and let you center if only for a moment. I can think of no better relaxing time then a cool breeze and good friends watching the sun set together. Well , maybe there are a few others but it’s an awful good time nonetheless.

If you weren’t crazy and took four years of Latin like I did then you probably have no clue what the title means of this little post. The words are actually all portions of tense and type of the word “love”. It is fascinating to think about all the aspects of love, and how the Romans, Greeks, and other civilizations reveled in love and all its forms. The Greeks actually had a series of words to describe the essence of love in forms ranging from passionate to committed. As a species we are fascinated with love, and yes, fascinated with all the aspects of love.

Take a moment, feel for a moment, love for a moment, and in the process open your mind to possibilities and consider well the depth of love. Love will keep us together, love will tear us apart, but love, in the end will be that thing that gives us more meaning than most animal. 

So as the sun sets on another day, be the love you want to receive, receive the love you can, and if you are hurt, don’t despair, love will come to you, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and love people too…
