love IS everything it’s cracked up to be

I found this great quote from Erica Jong over on dailyplanetprincess‘ blog

check it out

Do you want me to tell you something really subversive?

Love is everything it’s cracked up to be.

That’s why people are so cynical about it. . . .

It really is worth fighting for,

being brave for,

risking everything for.

And the trouble is,

if you don’t risk anything,

you risk even more.

– Erica Jong –

our kissin' crows

    One of the reasons I love your blog so much is that I never know what I’ll find. This is a wonderful image! There’s more going on out there in the world than we ever imagine!

    I thought I answered yesterday, but something happened and my computer did hicup…..And yes Linda, we are doing wonderful living here in the bush together like we do, off the grid and loving every minute of it. And weathering storms together makes us stronger each time they weave through us. And when I look at this quote and realize that is has always been a highly viewed post, but not much liked and or commented on. So I thought I would re-post because I love it soo.
