A 4 Letter Word

The world is full of 4 letter words.

Do visit Conrad, Ashok, Ramana , our regulars, and Magpie 11 who is joining the Loose Blogging Consortium for the first time, to see how they approach the topic for today.  It was Ramana’s turn to set the challenge and his subject for deliberation is:-


◦Audra McDonald–Love Changes Everything from Aspect of Love
◦Marin Mazzie–Unexpected Song from Song & Dance
◦Judy Kuhn–I Don`t Know How To Love Him from Jesus Christ Superstar

A live concert at Carnegie Hall filmed in September 1998, under the baton of musical director Paul Gemignani, the American Theatre Orchestra


Love is such a small word.

It trips easily off the tongue, so easily. I’d love a cup of coffee/G&T/bar of Chocolate/a new dress. I love Jazz/ that song/film. Alas many confuse it with another four letter word – They say I love you, when in fact what they actually feel is lust.

Love is life changing, breath taking and heart stompingly wonderful. It can also be painful, heart wrenching or unrequited. True love is not self-seeking, angry, or rude; it is patient, kind, trusting and protective. It endures.

I could write reams on our topic for today but so much of it I have covered before, right here on my Blog.  Finding love was mentioned in a Podcast, as was my giving it away, the speech I made at Elly’s wedding, the latter was recorded when I returned home, for those unable to attend on the special day.

The one love story I want to guide you to is here.  It certainly told of a special love.  Bring a tissue!


Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction ˜ Antoine de Saint – Exupery


Love cures people, the ones who give it and the ones who receive it. ~ Dr. Karl A. Menninger
