I read it once on the front page of a tabloid

I read once that it’s only love if you can list all the reasons why, otherwise it is simply biology, a response that with time will fade.

… and so I ponder when it was that love became a checklist of necessities and where on that list I should write that together we laugh like hyenas, contagiously giggling.

Further to this thought, when did love become a collection of data; a spreadsheet of positives, the five year plan of our futures, and is this the place where I should mention that I believe we have lived many futures, together, already?

I read once that we should consider love with our rational mind, so I consider the vagus nerve and your intrinsic understanding of her, I can comprehend the rise and even the fall, yet thought is without physical form, are we not told, that which we can not see or touch does not exist? Yet this we both know is not true, so where in my list should I write that I taste your essence at point of implosion.. Explosion?

I read once that it’s only love if you can list all the reasons why, otherwise it is simply biology…

I think Samuel Johnson Jr failed me in offering so few words…. for I could surely form a new dictionary based solely on my reasons why.

Phew, hopefully i’ve done it all right! Choosing only ten blogs was surprisingly hard. The blogs I follow, I follow by choice because each and every one of them inspires me in a different way.

Ok lastly I need to embed my current favourite song….who knew that choosing just one single song could be so hard. I have been thinking, hard about this since I got the award a few days back and I have nout! Seriously i’m not really a favourite kinda girl, I like lots of things, love loads of things, adore other things and…well you get the idea. So I rang my Dad, told him my dilemma, he laughed, a lot. Once as he was done laughing he suggested his favourite song ‘Always look on the bright side of life.’ good call Dad, but not today, it did however get me thinking. So this is one of my favourite songs.
