Love is....

L'Amour et Psyche by Fine Art Images

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:

O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.

Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.

If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

~ William Shakespeare, Sonnet 116

Averill thank you so much for coming by my blog and commenting so generously. I have appreciated ever single visit from you. I am glad we have connected through cyber space. I feel as if we are kindred spirits in so many of our design aesthetics. I know I always enjoy seeing what you have posted and you inspire me in so many ways.
