Letters 437: Perhaps Love

Vincent Van Gogh once said:

"What is done in love is well done."

To you whom I haven't met yet,

                 Here I am again for another weekly little chat & hopefully I should manage to say a lot before my bedtime. Anyway, did you know why do two people love each other? Why do we need someone to love? Why cannot we love ourselves and exist alone? And what is that chemistry that a couple loves each other? Why both should love each other, and no body else?

                 For me love is truly a mystery. Call it hormones, mind, heart, emotions or whatever, one falls in love with another person and cannot live without him/her. Physical beauty is not the sole criteria in romantic passionate love.

                Dear hummingbird, a very beautiful girl can passionately fall in love with an ordinary looking man to the surprise of all. There is something more that is yet to be explored. Ask a lover about why he/she loves her beloved and you will never get a logical answer. Love does not measure qualities, nor sets any standards. Love happens.

                Sometimes the love arises out of appreciation of qualities of the other. This love is different than romantic love, but can be equally magnetic. You may get attracted to some persons singing so much that you want to be with him/her at all times. It can be any quality, but it is the appreciation of quality that brings forth this love. In this case the love is passionate love with that quality.

                 My dear, in some cases two persons find so many things alike between each other that they believe they are soul mates. Made for each other, these lovers are bound by the common qualities. What ever may be the reason for falling in love, perhaps there is a groovy kind of story behind it. 

                Perhaps, it is just love. And that is what all my 437 letters to you in nine years was all about. I had written stories about my life with a great hope that you can enjoy reading it in future. One day, live in my heart & pay no rent forever. 

Yours always,

The Half Moon Serenades.
