Love, actually

Just this. And only this. But don’t watch unless you are prepared to feel all the feels.

 

Put on your perspectacles, a word which here means, the glasses you put on to see the world through eyes of  love–and watch for love today. Sometimes it’s sneaky, and hard to see. You may have to push aside some things for it to show up….but it’s there. ♥ And it’s the only thing that’s real.

Oh, and by the way? Favorite Christmas movie EVER.

The Meanest Flower

Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting

The Soul that rises with us, our life’s Star,

Hath had elsewhere its setting,

And cometh from afar:

Not in entire forgetfulness,

And not in utter nakedness,

But trailing clouds of glory do we come

From God, who is our home.

Though nothing can bring back the hour

Of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower;

We will grieve not, rather find

Strength in what remains behind;

In the primal sympathy

Which having been must ever be;

In the soothing thoughts that spring

Out of human suffering;

In the faith that looks through death,

Thanks to the human heart by which we live,

Thanks to its tenderness, its joys, and fears,

To me the meanest flower that blows can give

Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears.

-Bits and pieces taken from”Ode: Intimations of Immortality” by William Wordsworth

Love Actually is all Around

Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world,
 I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport.
 General opinion's starting to make out
 that we live in a world of hatred and greed,
 but I don't see that.

 It seems to me that love is everywhere.
 When the planes hit the Twin Towers,
 as far as I know none of the phone calls
 from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge
 - they were all messages of love.


 If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around.
