Opening Mood: Just returned back from home.
Opening Song: None.
There are thousands and thousands of quotations on love. There are millions of songs and Zillions of stories and Gazzillions of movies on love.
And I am not sure which one of them to believe, because of so many reasons, one of them being the lack of experience. So I better keep my mouth shut about this kind of slippery stuff, but I feel like barking today. For no particular reason [probably theg’s post has triggered something, which I am not able to concretely identify] I want to talk of one quote on Love.
Ages ago, I read this very powerful book “The Fountainhead” which had a great line about love –
“To say ‘I love you’ one must know first how to say the ‘I’.”
When I first read it, I was like “Wowie! What a statement” without even half realizing how might it feel to be in love. I don’t think I understand that now either!
I have been wondering, I have been thinking. I don’t have an answer, but, you bet, I do have a question.
All’s fine if you treat Rand’s statement like a photograph. Look at it, appreciate it, turn the page and look at the next photograph in the album. But when you start thinking of Dynamic quality, you start wondering, is this statement always true?! I mean, will this statement hold good once both “I” and “You” have acknowledged the “I Love You”? Will knowing to say the “I” help, once “I” and “You” have combined to become a “We”? Shouldn’t “Love” be the guiding light for “I” and “You” then onwards?
Arrrgh @$#!@#!! What am I even thinking?! Something about which I know absolutely nothing.
Where is the Mop, where is the Broom???
Let me shove this thought outta my Room…
Whoooosh!! Mop Mop Mop!!!
There – Swept away. Back to a clean state of mind again 🙂
Closing Song: None.
Closing Mood: In a hurry. Another trek. Charmadi Ghats this time!
