The cultivation of Intimacy, whether it be through friendships, lovers, family, or with yourself, that is the way to love. An intimate inclusion that allows you to become more then what you are. It is worth every effort; every heartbreak. It is growth by fire. -tM

Worth the Knowing

“There’s a Japanese phrase that I like: koi no yokan. It doesn’t mean love at first sight. It’s closer to love at second sight. It’s the feeling when you meet someone that you’re going to fall in love with them. Maybe you don’t love them right away, but it’s inevitable that you will.” -Nicola Yoon, The Sun Is Also a Star

Marina Abramovic: On Fostering Love

 

                            On how best to nurture love: 

 

“This is from [singer-songwriter] Lou Reed and [artist] Laurie Anderson:

Number one: You’ve got to have a good bulls*** detector, to really understand the bulls*** that people are putting on you.

Number two: Not to be afraid of anybody and anything.

And number three: To be tender.

I think this is the best [advice] that I have ever heard.” -Marina Abramovic

I Miss You

I fell in love with her, as many do, the first time I saw and felt her light, her energy, and the beauty of her architecture. Needless to say her culture, the style of her people, their joie de vivre, and her je ne sais quoi are also part of her considerable allure. 

I miss her terribly. I miss the energy with which she infuses me and the inspiration that I cultivate just by walking her streets.

I have always felt like she was a life long lover of mine, as our meeting has never been coincidental. My love for her has been in me all along. 

Tell me, what city have you chosen to write your love story with? -tM
