First, allow me to thank everyone who sent in photographs for this share because they are all AWESOME!
And what I LOVE about these photos is that they encompass such a nice variety.
Love comes in many forms.
Whether it's people, a place, an animal, a beautiful sunset or sunrise, or even something so simple as a certain food or drink we enjoy, the emotion and passion that we feel whenever we experience it...seems to come from an energy within the heart.
“Life is a paradise for those who love many things with a passion.” - Leo Buscaglia
One of the things I love about blogging is that we get to meet people from all over the world who share their life, their talents, their opinions and their passions.
And even though we might be separated physically, the emotions we share through our words connect us through our energy. And in many ways this energy can often touch us more profoundly than the physical.
The Internet is truly like a massive web, which weaves its way far and wide.
I've met so many terrific people through the medium of blogging; people I may not have met otherwise.
And I like that the community we share with each other is diverse. We don’t all have the same interests or always talk about the same things. But that’s a GOOD thing because this is how we learn and expand.
I like that I hang out on the Internet with people who are different than me.
But the one thing we ALL share that’s the same--is LOVE.
So allow me to share some of that love…

This picture is a favourite because I love wildlife - especially birds.

Couldn't think of a more unconditional love than that which we received from our late companion, Karla. This snap just about sums her up.

The ocean is a constant source of spiritual renewal for me. It’s where time seems to stand still so I can adjust my attitude and clear out the head trash. Of course, it may just be the Margarita that’s in my hand.

"I love adventure!"
An impulsive trip to Vieques, Puerto Rico with a stranger. This captures both my love of traveling to interesting places and my love of being open to the opportunities the universe drops in my lap.

I took this photo yesterday at the Columbus Zoo. The woman was sitting in a gorilla 'cage' behind a glass wall. The baby boy was born May 23rd to Kambera and Oliver and is the first offspring for both. Zookeepers are raising him because Kambera did not show maternal instincts, but they hope to reunite mother and baby.

Love is my dad and mom, brothers and sisters. Despite my flaws and in spite of all my mistakes, they love and accept me unconditionally.
Jay at The Depp Effect
I love so many things (greyhounds, Johnny Depp, insects, art and crafts, Italy ... the list goes on) but right now, everything else is cast into the shade by these two cute little new people. Our first grandchildren, and identical twin girls!

When I think of love, I can't help but think of my family. They have always defined love, not only as a feeling or emotion, but as an action. Their love is not only spoken, but demonstrated by a genuine and willing desire to work as a unit. I feel overwhelmingly blessed and a strong sense of security to have such great people in my life.

This was tough. I went through all the photos in my computer and I could only find touristy, vacation type stuff. Nice enough, but they didn't say "love" to me in a particularly meaningful way. Then I looked at the very last photo in my computer and I found a picture of a mask that my mother made. This one had "LOVE" written all over it. It's something she made with her own hands and, in a way, it keeps her in my life.

I love the deer in Corolla, NC. But not just the deer.... the funny faces they are constantly making that can't be seen until you bring their pictures up on a computer. I have countless pictures of them with their mouths open or tongues sticking out. Deer are apparently the comedians of the outdoors!
Have a FAB weekend everyone!
P.S. And if you haven't already done so, please stop by these blogs and introduce yourself because they're GREAT people!
