Naughty or nice?


At the request of someone near and very, very dear to me, I am updating my blog. In honor of this person, the topic today is love.

There are many different kinds of love. All of them are portrayed here, photographically, in random order because I didn’t have the time to sort through.

There’s love of nature, love of a pet, or pets, there’s familial love, there's friend love and there’s the other kind of love; that of a man for a woman, or a man for a man or woman for a woman for that matter. It’s the kind of love that takes your breath away and makes you want to be a better person.

It’s the kind of love that comes only once in a lifetime, it makes you melt and when you are with that person, you are complete and whole for the first time in your life.

It makes you weak and strong at the same time and makes you wonder how you could be so lucky as to have them in your life.

Emmy, one of the cats that owns me.

Bobbi, my co-worker and dear friend.

My brother and his dog, may she rest in peace.

They "eye of the needle" one of my favorite oddities of nature.

Christmas, 2007, spent with the cousins. A good time was had by all!

Dale, gone from this plane of existence, but never ever forgotten.

The brat pack cats, trying to help me pack for yet another road trip.

Cousin Kay, who was "thrilled" to receive numerous pairs of thong panties for Christmas, because a girl needs sexy underwear...dammit!

Daddy.


Apparently someone thinks I've been naughty...can't imagine who!

Merry Christmas all and I hope you have a happy New Year!

Love is always an eternal present - there is not 'past' with love
You are full of love, bless you for that!

I could see the love in each and every picture. I think that a loving soul like yourself both creates love and attracts it.

BC (before cynicism) I spoke much of Love, professionally and personally. It was CS Lewis who polularized four kinds: storges, filia. eros and Agape. http://protestantism.suite101.com/blog.cfm/the_four_kinds_of_love
Islam speaks of four kinds also but that would get entirely too academic in this forum.

I love you photos and I am glad you seem to have lots of love in you life. MY latest is my new dog. Well worth risking to love!

Love - what a great topic Laurie. I love your recap photos. And I sooo want to know why someone thinks you've been naughty, or maybe I don't want to know!
