Keeping Love Alive...Keeps You Alive

Sitting in Fado, an Irish Pub in Columbus, Ohio, I was reflecting on Sir Bowie's Cell Theroy. As the Smithwick's went down easier I was content to just observe three sets of couples and how they communicated and reacted to each other. Couple A was first on my list. In their early 20's the conversation flowed from one to the other without missing a beat, while their eyes connected continuously. The only heisitation came when she would go outside to smoke (Ohio State Law) and she would say, "Don't miss me too much!" Couple B were in their late 30's. It was actually a set of two couples of that age. The female of Couple B was swaying to the music, getting up and pumping her fist into the air and generally connecting to the joyous universe, an action obviously not joined in by her mate. The look on his face was one of disgust, embarrassment, and jealousy all rolled up in a scrunchy ball of stress. Couple C I found the most intriquing. It was an obvious fight, probably stored up for weeks, waiting for releash at just the right time; a dark Irish Pub with good beer. Their whole conversation continued without any eye contact. The female would stick her head in his face, making her point while pointing her finger. The man would look straight ahead like he just got caught pissing in his pants in second grade. Then, it was his turn. He would get in her face with the look of a high school football coach on Friday Night Lights while she would turn her head the other way and cover her face with her hands. This went on for at least 20 minutes, after which it was so painful for me to watch, even in my facination, that I had to return to Couple A, still basking in the energy of Love. I asked myself, how do we get from Point A to Point C? Better yet, is it possible to get back to Point A from Point C? The answer is yes. On so many levels; physical, mental, spiritual, keeping love alive keeps you alive. I concluded my night in the Zoo by writing this poem:

Eyes Wide
Open to Life
A Mystic Dance
Into the Unknown

Not Afraid
Forward Motion
Propels the Spirit Towards
A Union
Yet, Divine

Sir Hook "The Lover" of Warrick

  1. The choice to live in separation -- a choice no cell ever makes unless it becomes cancerous -- creates disease, stress, conflict, and violence.

    To love, accept, promote peace, and see someone without judgment is a subtle experience that is quiet and harmonious -- like the couple gazing into each other's eyes.

    Sir Bowie of Greenbriar
