The Book of Love:

According to Peter Gabriel the Book of Love is long and boring and so heavy no one can lift it. I can believe it's long, but not boring. I think it must be full of agony, despair, betrayals, murders, and suicides that separate one moment of heaven from the next. The Book of Love is so fascinating, nobody can put it down.

A band called Book of Love was creating music in the 1990s. My favorite song was Modigliani (Lost In Your Eyes). It starts off dramatically:

Darkest night, candlelight
Your hands were soft, your skin too pale
White on white, I had to turn away
From your light... 

I was in love then with a very special woman, but not now. The Book of Love doesn't usually end the way you think it will.


  1. There is nothing like the love .....
    Be how it is, love is needed because love is life.

    1. And music too: "The book of love has music in it. In fact that's where music comes from."

  2. The heart remembers while listening to 'The Book of Love' by Peter Gabriel ... and it is hard to turn the page ... when the heart remembers.

    1. And some of those memories are just too hard to take, so you only glance at those pages.
