    That twinge in your intestines
    It's true, at least it is in my world.

    So, with Valentine's Day approaching, I ask you:

    What is your definition of the word "love"?

    We have only this one word in our entire language to cover this broad and almost ineffable concept. I'll write more about what it means to me, I promise. But I'm always interested in hearing what others have to say.

    For me, I try to keep a few things in mind:
    1. Words have meaning.
    2. Actions have consequences.
    3. Other people are just as real as I am.

    Your thoughts?

    Nothing screams "love" better than a roundhouse kick.

    I thought love meant swallowing.

    ____________
    or was that lust?

    Supposedly love is:

    Giving someone the power to destroy you and trusting them not to.

    It's letting down the barrier that
    each of us have erected around us.
