Have you ever thought of love as having flavors? And just so we’re clear on this subject I am referring to a non physical application. Love of a sunny day.
Or the pure love of a parent/child relationship. Or the love of watching your favorite sports team in a close game of skill. Yes even love of different kinds of food.
I know when we think of food, just a million different potentialities come to mind. What kind of food, sweet or savory, strong or mild, delicate or heavy, just so many possibilities.
I think love does have flavors, A variety of flavors that mix and match on any given day for any given reason. a special feel good spot that can have nuances to it in the moment where some particular extra something happens that sets that moment apart for you. Putting in the last piece of a difficult puzzle. A day spent with a friend or family where each moment adds a positive feel good feeling.
In this country, at this time of year. the flavors of love are plentiful. Many of us have cherished memories to associate from holidays past, decorating is a love/chore in and of itself.
Viewing the decorations everywhere is a daily pleasure. But more than that the verbal exchanges from people,
the happy music, and videos, the hustle and bustle, the smells and tastes of delicious treats all of it blending together weaving so many flavors of love right up to the New Year.
I for one love bringing in the New Year, the ending/beginning and the rejoicing of same!
I’m hoping this year as many of us ‘as is possible’ will hold true to the spirit of the holiday season and cherish the many flavors of love.
