This week, two things expanded my understanding of day-to-day love.
First, Kate Dicamillo’s Flora & Ulysses (recommended to me by my daughter, and two dear friends both named Amy).
My treasured ideas from the book:
- remember that love can triumph over a whole slew of wrongs, weaknesses, and oddities
- keep the window open at night in hopes of something wonderful flying in
- always open the door in hopes that you’ll see the face of someone you love
Secondly, Ellie Holcomb’s heartbreaking, lovely song “With You Now”: this type of love is the epitome of a good marriage, a good friendship, and a good life.
