Love Your Own Way
"You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams"
Is it possible to be in love with love?
I love it when I stumble across young lovers in the street, there's something contagious about their togetherness, it makes me want to skip down the street, hum, sing...all with a silly grin. Here they are, channeling their own blissful aura, intense gazes, secret smiles...arms entwined, cocooned like oysters in their own pearly shell. I can't help but stare. Oh sure, I try to do it surreptitiously, at first, a furtive peek, a sly glance over the shoulder but after a few wistful stares, I become brave and just stop...a little further down the path of course...trying not to bump into others who've also stopped to do the same... Do you think they're even conscious of other souls hurrying around them? Deep envious sigh.
And do you know what else I do? I give them names, imagine their lives...take my star-crossed pair in the photo above. That's James; her name's Camille. James has to fly out tomorrow morning early...Camille doesn't want him to leave. Don't you love the pigeon lovers watching them too?
How about you? What catches your imagination on the streets these days?
