... it's the only thing that there's just too little of.
nick and i just watched 500 days of summer (2009), a movie in which
zooey deschanel's character is decidedly unromantic
and completely against the idea of love.
she can't see it, she certainly can't feel it, and she doesn't
know what she is missing in her life because she is just fine without it.
the only thing that joseph gordon levitt's puppy eyed, love struck character
can come up with to say in love's defense is that "it's love, it's not santa claus,"
and you know it when you feel it.
left with the icky taste of cynicism and unrequited affection in my mouth,
i was in the mood for an extra dose of love and stumbled upon
brimming from cover to cover and spilling and splashing over each page
are gorgeous photographs of real life and faux couples whose
unabashed passion and utter surrender to one another really
celebrates how beautiful it is to love
and be loved.
