Spread # 118- Not So Banal December 24, 2010Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
Just discovered this old picture of my brother, my cousin, my grandma, and me. Looking at 4 year old me, I wonder what it is that I needed the most and found out that it is the same thing that I now find hard living without, and that is love. All my other needs were different then, than they are today. Only the need for love never went away. There is nothing banal about love. It is the single most powerful force in the universe. All good things come through it, and all problems, small and colossal, can be solved by it. I wish we didn’t overuse the word love and strip it from its powers. I wish we weren’t that cynical about love. I wish we admitted how much we believe in it, want it, and desperately need it. I wish we confessed that we don’t get enough of it. I wish we were more generous with it, giving it plentifully. I wish you a finale to this year that is filled with love and tons and tons of love in the coming year.
