For Love


The Eskimo has fifty-two names for snow because it is important to them; there ought to be as many for love. ~Margaret Atwood

There are many unofficial names for love, but I agree that we should acknowledge them more.

and yet we wouldn't be able to accurately describe our feelings...
the problem with concepts like 'love' is that they are always interpreted idiosyncratically.

Love does have many different names - we just need to open our eyes to see it.

the eskimoes rub noses as a greeting and to show love, isn't that just perfect...and it warms their noses too ha ha.
