Can’t Help Falling in Love

Three months ago this blog post was 75% complete and well on its way to being published. Despite my August deadline, I was feeling uninspired and decided to walk away for reflection. I missed the opportunity to connect this post to August, “Romance Awareness Month”, but I would much rather publish content I am proud of than meet deadlines for the sake of being clever. That being said, allow me to set the stage for this project that has been a labor of love (HA!). Back in April, I made two collages of Gilbert Blythe and Anne Shirley from “Anne of Green Gables” in honor of Jonathan Crombie. When I found out August was “Romance Awareness Month” (who knew?!!), I immediately put my Photoshop skills to work and made collages for my favorite TV and movie couples. This project is near and dear to my heart. The couples I have chosen are fictional, but their stories inspire me because they have substance. Personally, I am not fond of glorifying the physicality of relationships. Less is more! I recently watched the BBC miniseries “North & South” for the first time. The main characters do not interact romantically until the last few minutes of the series, and yet I felt tension and passion throughout; I did not need to see more in order to empathize. It was absolutely brilliant! I strongly believe purity and subtlety go a long way, much further than graphic details. We should all have high standards and use the term “love” with caution. Go ahead and call me a “hopeless romantic”; I accept that label with open arms. πŸ™‚
