My daughter and I were noodling on love and relationships, how they mean different things to different people, and how it can be hard to settle on a definition that remains solid over time. During the discussion, I thought of this post at Gekko’s and said, “Some consider a relationship to be a vessel and love fills it up. Well, ideally love would fill it. The vessel might crack and love spills out. Maybe it can be repaired. Or maybe something else fills it up. ”
My daughter said, “You mean a blood vessel, like to the heart?”
I laughed, “No!”
“No, no. A goblet. A vase. How interesting you came up with the other possibilities.”
Isn’t it though?
