When two people meet and fall in love, there’s a sudden rush of magic. Magic is just naturally present then. We tend to feed on that gratuitous magic without striving to make any more. One day we wake up and find that the magic is gone. We hustle to get it back, but by then it’s usually too late, we’ve used it up. What we have to do is work like hell at making additional magic right from the start. It’s hard work, but if we can remember to do it, we greatly improve our chances of making love stay.

earthing on pine needles, pollen & fine strips of her sweet bark.
we hightailed it to the mountains yesterday to watch the gibbous moonrise & feed the fire stories from the first year of our love. we saw our first glow worm! & caught frogs, & stalked a young deer (just to be near its mystery), & watched the dipper leak (in its milky way) streams of stars and satellites across the dark.
do any of you live in or near seattle?
going to be all up in your city soon & have so many questions. answer here or say hi at firstname.lastname@example.org — special points if you practice yoga & enjoy wilderness adventures! <3 <3
When the mystery of the connection goes, love goes. It’s that simple. This suggests that it isn’t love that is so important to us but the mystery itself. The love connection may be merely a device to put us in contact with the mystery, and we long for love to last so that the ecstasy of being near the mystery will last.
