What is love?


I find it seriously ironic that many writers of love songs or love stories are good at the concept of but not in life experience of love.  Is it their deep desire to find love that keeps them writing even after so many failed attempts at it themselves?


Not to be cynical or sarcastic but why do we keep listening to their music when what they speak about isn’t practiced?  It’s like going to a college professor who teaches medicine for open heart surgery…they just don’t have the practical experience where as a seasoned cardiologist in the field performing surgery every day would be so much more reliable.


Real, true, authentic love isn’t for the weak minded or weak of heart.  Writers may ponder its existence and miss their opportunity all together.  I don’t profess to know all there is about real love, but I do experience it every day with my wife and my kids…and it’s amazing and yet difficult at the same time.

We will always hear the siren call of those writing about love but never actually living it.  It might be just me, but I would prefer to live it rather than profit from it as a profession.

…and they lived happily ever after… 😉
