when i tried to tell him about the disney thoughts on love
(see post below) he shook his head and talked about those
images we get and how destructive they can be.
he knows first hand as he's had to battle a few of the images
that i had trouble letting go.
and then he said they make it seem like love's a rock.
like it's something you just find.
then you have it.
and you don't have to do anything, it's just yours.
i so smiled.
that's it! i thought.
it was something you just found, and then kept.
like a rock.
that was how i thought love was.
love isn't something you just find, then you have and you keep.
not at all.
it's not a noun.
it's a verb.
it's totally a verb.
it's something you move with, grow with, learn with.
and THAT was what had to change in my mind
before i could really participate with it.
