The Veracity of Love

I was talking with a dear friend about the state of their relationships and that led to a discussion of my past relationships.  An interesting fact that I never really thought about came to me.  I loved my ex within a month of the start of our relationship.  I loved her through multi-day arguments.  I loved her for months after she gave up on me.  I loved so much that I let structural issues in our relationship go, modifying my own behavior instead of dealing with them head on.

While I still have love for her, I am not in love with her anymore, and I never will again.  (Interesting how a single event can change how one feels.)

But that is a fact, immutable, in my past.  I know I have moved on, that I can have true love with someone else.  Nonetheless it is there.

It's not something I want to dwell on or talk about, really.  But it came up and I thought it was worth writing about.

Be good, have fun,

Bonus Track:
I've started dessert making lately.  It is a change of pace from my normal routine and it is a great way to show appreciation to those around me.  I think this is what I'm making next.
