Love


I just finished reading I Love You, Ronnie and I am left utterly speechless.

So since I've nothing more to say on this I'll pose a question, asked by one of the most intellectually profound artists of our time...According to Nancy and Ronnie the answer is yes.

I'm in awe of them both.

I'll have to read the book.
I had heard, multiple times (by multiple "type" people) that their marriage was, indeed, a true love affair that lasted their entire lives, until his disease took him.

I think that sort of lifelong love is a very rare and special thing.

I haven't seen forever, so I don't know. I guess some of it depends upon what you think a "love affair" means. I do know that the "real thing" feels different from anything else. It feels different at different times, too, but I think, from experiencing 17+ years of loving the same person, that it is possible. I'm still in love, and feel passionate for/about him. I know folks who still are in love after 50+ years together, but it's not all steamy passion now; it's deep, many-layered knowing and intimacy. So that's my "2 cents' worth."

I think it's possible, but we tend to muck it up with expectations that are far too high... expectations of ourselves and of our mate. I think what Ron and Nancy had was a deep, mutual admiration that transcended any sort of perfectionism. They also seemed to be each other's biggest fan... protector... nurturer...

Wouldn't it be great to remain in love with a person who loves you the same through all the highs and lows? It is possible.

Easy? Probably not.
