WHAT LOVE LOOKS LIKE

Ever since reading Debbie's post I have been thinking about what love looks like. So many images jump to mind, but I find it's really hard to find the right words to describe some of them. (I'm working on a poem - stay tuned.)

One thing that comes to mind is the musical Les Miserables. If you've read the book by Victor Hugo or seen the musical, then you know it is ultimately about love and forgiveness, two things I find coexist rather well together. Today's quote comes from the musical.

"To love another person is to see the face of God."

- Les Miserables

  1. Irene,

    Les Mis is one of my favorite stories in all of its forms.

    "What Love Looks Like" brings so many things to mind, and when I wrote about it on my blog, the story that I told was only one, of many, that could have been evoked by those words.

    I am honored to know that I was able to spark some ideas for you. I cannot wait to see what you come up with.
