Love and I are not getting along. This past year hasn’t been a good one for me and love…at least romantic love. I know that people love me – in fact that’s the best thing about having your heart broken – realizing the whole world of other people who love you and are there for you. But romantic love…it’s pretty shitty when it ends. And much like everything in my life, as I get older, it gets harder to deal with.
What started three years ago finally came to an end recently and I’ve been picking up the pieces slowly. Too slowly. Some days I don’t think about it at all, and some days it makes me intensely angry or sad. But endings are always a roller coaster of emotions for me – so this ride I’m on now shouldn’t surprise me.
What doesn’t help is Valentine’s Day. Stupid, stupid Valentine’s Day.
So instead of writing something about how bitter I am about love , I thought I would try to focus on bringing you a good love story this week in order to focus on the positive sides of love.
Let’s Hear it for Love!
Read the story of how I uncovered a love story in a bell tower in Germany here…
In addition, every year I collect photography from around the world of unusual places where I find love and hearts.
This last year had me discovering love in nature quite often – see if you can find the hearts in these pictures of my travels around the world.
