Love is :)

Love is like a stranger who comes Knocking at your door. Some people throw their door open wide; their light shines out like the energy of a sun, bright, blinding - they are the embodiment of optimism and enthusiasm. They are not fettered by inhibitions or fears but are awe inspiring by their brightness and their boldness.

Other people open their door, but not so wide. Their light is strong - it holds a promise.  They are imbued with a sense of expectation and anticipation. Their light may not be blinding but it is still awe inspiring all the same.

And then there are the people who hear the knock at the door. Sitting at the kitchen table they dim their light as low as it will go - so as it won't be noticed. They do not want to be noticed, they have had their fill of strangers knocking at their door. Perhaps they have been consumed  by fear, or disappointments. No matter what the reason their light does not shine forth either blindingly or strong with possibilities. It does however shine brightly for the people who they already know and allow in.

They have forgotten the wise words  "Today, give a stranger one of your smiles.  It might be the only sunshine he sees all day."  ~Quoted in P.S. I Love You, compiled by H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
