To me, the notion of romance does not singularly involve a boy meets girl, girl kisses girl, and boy falls for boy scenario. Romance in its entirety has always encompassed so much more.
It’s a place and a moment. It’s a lingering aroma. The way the lights touch ones eyes. A song, a car, a painting or a photograph. It is the universe conspiring. It is the instant your heart opens up and drinks in the beauty of what must be.
To me romance involves more than two people finding one another. It entails us finding that special kind of magic in everyday life and holding on to it as one would a life line. Even the stodgiest old fool has a soft spot for it.
I want to explore each of these sentiments and understand why it is human beings are so in love with romance.
