    What is it?? I'm embarking on a ten week philosophy course and love came up. In my
    twenties,searching for conquests on leave in my naval uniform,in the Empress Ballroom no less.The love I was looking for- from my standpoint today in my 87th year seems very superficial.

    Today,sitting with my wife Margaret-an emaciated figure I am feeding-trying to get her to eat. She turned and her eyes were full of love.The look in her eyes stayed with me-I could feel the warmth permeating my whole being.
    I'ts taken me a long time!

    I like that verse "Many waters cannot Quench love."

    Treasure that moment and count yourself lucky - some people never experience it.

    Love (of a different kind)

    Margaret

    87 years is nothing in the passage of time where the universe is concerned. Many think they have found love and then been disillusioned - not once but twice and more in their lifetimes. Your philosophy course seems to be good so far and I'm so pleased for you.

    Love is a word to loosely describe many things to many people. Like; might be a more appropriate word. For example: material items or image, I love that car, dress, coat, ice cream or a pint of beer.
    With the passing of time you realise that you may have been sold a superficial package of love.

    To be lucky enough 'to fall in love' you experience a life change. In love is a state of being, where your life is secondary to your spouse's and children.
    That is just my uneducated logical interpretation of my experience of love.
