Deep within the recess of emotion, we long to say the same phrase over and over again,
But there are constraints that make it difficult to translate across borders,
In the effort to convert these present walls into windows,
In this effort to communicate that same phrase in the million ways necessary for all to
receive it,
We co-create the holy,
Through the single phrase, “I love you!”

    This is a great write! The power of those words in any language or in action is amazing. Very well done. Peace, Love, and Light be with you and yours always. Smiles from Lolita

    So much truth in your words, Woodrow. There are countless ways to say, "I love you," and none of them seem to be truly adequate. Very nice reflection!
