It would be presumptuous to say that this is the end of the love story.
Of course it's not the end! It's just the beginning.
Of many strange things in this world, love might be the strangest of all.
Sometimes I think there is nothing easier...
and other times nothing harder than to love.
It takes a lifetime of learning to love and be loved.
Or perhaps, more accurately, as Editor would say,
it will take an eternity plus one day.
But we must not be discouraged by this.
On the contrary!
We can begin to relax from our driven,
take a breath, or two or three,
and allow the vastness and the beauty of the universe around us
... and inside us...
to enlarge our vistas as we grow in the best adventure of all.
