“Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.
But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love’s ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart
and a song of praise upon your lips”
– Kahlil Gibran
“Let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
Love one another but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls”
“And forget not that the earth delights
to feel your bare feet and
the winds long to play with your hair”
“Yesterday we obeyed kings
and bent our necks before emperors.
But today we kneel only to truth,
follow only beauty,
and obey only love.”
Thank you to Megan and Nathanael for asking me to capture these moments.
I fell under the spell of their love, trust and affection for each other and for their sweet boys. If only all of the world’s children could be brought up to love and be loved like this what a beautiful world this could be.
Hug your babies.
Kiss your mate.
Happy Friday. Happy World Breastfeeding Week. Happy Love,
