*Fourth, how do you love?
I tend to love with all of my heart, without reservation, or thought. It gets me in trouble often. Though letting myself fall in love with the Spousal Equivalent turned out to be an exception to the rule! Love you honey!
*Does it touch you, hold you, fill you, fling you into the world?
I believe that there is more types of love than just romantic boyfriend/girlfriend love. My love of my partner, my family of choice, my family of birth and my friends sustains me. When we are out of touch for too long, it's like a light goes dim in my life. Without love, my life doesn't have much meaning.
*Whom do you love?
As I said above, my partner, my pets, my family of choice, my family of birth and my friends.
*Are there parents, grandparents, siblings, children, grandchildren, close to you or far away, living or departed, their faces in your heart?
I have a cousin in Richmond, and that s my closest family. The rest of the family is in New York. I really miss it this time of year. Yes, it's true. I miss the snow. I miss having a white christmas.
*Does your love reach out, to heal, to soothe, to comfort, to feed the hungry and warm the cold?
I try to be there for my friends, supporting them, cooking for them, giving them sanctuary when they need it. I believe that my apartment should be a sanctuary from the problems that they face. That's why we're taking people in for Christmas.
