Tending to Love


Love doesn't just sit there like a stone; it has to be made, like bread, remade all the time, made new. ~Ursula K. Le Guin

A Happy and Safe New Year's Eve to All! ~GZ

Love needs to be given freely in order to be returned.

Ursula K. Le Guin has always been a favorite of mine--she so perfectly and painfully captures what it is to be human; this description doesn't even begin to touch on her talents. Anyhow, thanks for commenting on my blog so that I could discover yours! It's beautiful. Thank you.

Bonne année, Get Zapped !
Happy new year

You know, during my vacation I was in my familly in the south part of France and we were a lot of persons in a great kind pf mansion: 14 in fact, young and less young people
One of my brothers in law and one of my sisters in law like to do themselves bread
Home made bread is the best : it has a quite different taste: the taste of love !

Love should not have conditions. If it has then it is not love.

What a beautiful and apt analogy about love here. What a true depiction. I find love is quite a hard thing to do. It is demanding. It is living. It has to be re-made all our lives...oooh, or it will go stale just like a few days old bread!

Real hard work, that..but love is the very fuel for our existence in life. So hard work it shall be, no less.

brian- so true!

Welcome, Kathy. It's nice to hear from you how much you admire Ursula. My pleasure to discover more about her!

shrig- much of the same to you ; )

cergie- the hands of love make bread. Nothing like good 'ole rustic bread. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it!

susan- let's eat it up before it gets moldy -hee hee

gautami- I couldn't have said it better.

ruby - love does take effort, and the more we invest, the more we hope to share.

Peace to all of you!
