To Blave…

The sun sets on another day…

Sunset was full of wispy snow, covering everything with fluffy flakes of icy goodness. (Or covering it all with ice and snow and need to plow). In the end though, it was pretty driving in the equivalent of a starfield from Star Wars.

I like watching people interact. Not in a creepy way like you would see in movies that make you wonder about the world, but in ways where you see the best in people. Believe it or not, there is still good in a lot of people. Tonight I watched people interact and laugh and smile, and as I did I saw the things that make people so endearing. The elements of passion, pride, power, and prudence that that us all strive for more, and look for more out of life.

Somewhere in the midst of it all I started thinking about how people express themselves to each other. In the middle of all of that I thought about how love manifests with us all.

It is different to many. Obviously some people use love as a weapon or a negative. Pushing and pulling others for the sake of control. Equally as obviously, some people do not understand love, and in the process do not make good decisions that inspire and impassion others. There are those though that understand parts or more of love, and in the process inspire others, comfort others, excite others, or share in a love with others.

The idea of true love, well, it is tough. As I see it love it is a series of interactions that continue as two or more people interact with intent to improve someone else’s life or position or passion without regard to their own. With that in mind true love is taking that further and both people giving the same and both giving of themselves, and receiving at the same time. In that mindset being in a one sided relationship is not true love because it can’t exist without all parties being engaged. A note on the internet says similar with the definition being ” a strong and lasting affection between spouses or lovers who are in a happy, passionate and fulfilling relationship.” Funny how sometimes I get something right.

If you are on a seesaw, you are not loved truly. If you are holding back, you are not giving true love. Only when you let go can you have that pure feeling that enables more than just a minute minute of minimal measure.

I could go on for far too long. Perhaps true love is also sacrifice and change. Sometimes if you truly love someone, you let them go to find their way, and in the process your love becomes different for them. Perhaps you grow and understand love more from that loss than from any other. A lot to consider.

So as the sun sets on another day, life is full or passion, pain, and somewhere in the middle is a little more. Find love, and remember, to blave may mean to bluff, but in “The Princess Bride” it was had a path to true love, if only for a joke. Find your passion, make it real, and love like there is no tomorrow. No matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live deeply…
