Yes, I know it is a repeat. Yesterday's post brought up some interesting responses for people, so perhaps it is worth repeating.
If I love you, what business is it of yours?
~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe ~
I'd love to hear more of your thoughts about what this means. I see it as many layered. Depending upon your point of view and your viewing point, the meaning comes from several directions all at once. Or maybe there is some built in Rorschach to it...not that I have any intention of analyzing your responses.
Someone asked what it means to me. One response is not enough:
- Who I love is my business and I will go about the business of loving them whether they are aware of my love or not.
- What would it mean to you if you knew I love you?
- I am responsible for my feelings.
- My loving you is not dependent upon your knowing it and responding in a certain way.
On another note...
Squirrel update: They came when I called this morning. Apparently, squirrel politics abound. Three red males appeared this morning. One of them came and took two consecutive peanuts from my hand. The others wouldn't approach. They did, however, run off my little buddy. I guess they don't (a) like him fraternizing with the humans or (b) getting more peanuts than they do. After the others challenged him a couple times, he wouldn't come back for more.
No problem. Tomorrow is another day.
