love thursday 08.25.11 ~ get burnt in the fire of love

Be daring enough to be different, humble enough to make mistakes, wild enough to be burnt in the fire of love, real enough to make others see how phony you are.

Brennan Manning

We think of love as soft and gentle--warm and fuzzy. Sometimes love burns. Have you ever been burnt in the fire of love?

I have. The most exquisite pain makes you sure that at any moment you will spontaneously combust. And you don't. And you don't know whether you are glad or disappointed.

It's not a choice. I happens. The choice is whether to be open to the wildness of love, as well as the pink Valentine.

Go ahead. I dare you.

I double dog dare you.
