In the depths of my being, a strange certainty, deeper than reason, entirely animal in quality, filled me with terror. The same certainty which some beasts-sheep and rats feel before an earthquake. Awakening in me was the soul of the first men on Earth, such as it was before it became totally detached from the universe, when it still felt the truth directly, without the distorting influence of reason- The 'Boss', Zorba the Greek

Love-less

There is a wedding everyday, these days. It is all about how much money you spent, which wedding was longer, who wore what, who was invited, where they went for their honeymoon- comparisons of the materialistic things. People are getting married fast and all together just in case it goes out of fashion or potential companions run out. Yes, we get these invites all the time- and we think, "How am I going to get out of this one?"

There is a divorce everyday, these days. Cover ups, forced smiles, playing pretend. Just to hide a split up. Our school principals and teachers thought we came up with brilliant reasons for coming late to school. They never knew of the lies we were capable of! Then again, society didn't tear you apart for coming to school fifteen minutes late, but a potential divorce? a broken marriage? Gossip and mean-ness reaches new levels. That isn't my point- not for this post, anyway.

Weddings-divorces-weddings-divorces..... What I want to ask is, where is the love? Or is this a trend? Has it become cool to divorce by the second year of being married? I don't think so. I think, it's okay not to know love - not to love love anymore.

Where are all these thoughts coming from, you wonder? From watching a movie where love transcends everything, from the relationship, from the self- yet it is there right till the end. From a MOVIE! That is the only place love really exists anymore. It is the only place it remains as it was years ago. In real life, people say they are in love, do things you do in love, but tomorrow *poof* it's gone.  That is NOT love. 

I can't believe I am rambling on about "love"- my most hated topic of yesteryear, but also most debated. Cha: you called me a romantic and I fought it, but I guess I am. 

I have been defeated: by love. And I am just trying to stand up for it.
