The word love is used to describe our relationship with banal objects or things, and also to describe how we feel about the most important people in our lives. In definition love would seem to occupy the farthest territory of emotion, sharing space with the word hate. Yet we cannot help ourselves to use it on a daily basis. We do not keep it in the cupboard with the fine china and silver, we use it every day. Despite our casual use of it the power of the word is not diminished. Everybody wants love in their life.  We will never know how our love compares to the love of others, or if the depths of our love are as deep as the depths of those around us, but we do share the word. It is the word that connects us | Visit to find out more about what’s going on…
