It's all about love

In honor of Valentine's Day, I thought I'd post a paragraph from "Missing Maggie" that explains some of Kody Burkoff's views on love.

The thought of never wanting to be away from someone, of having another human being totally consume you until they are all that you can think about. That’s what I’ve been striving for. That’s what love should feel like. It shouldn’t be some mediocre feeling you have when someone walks into the room. The feeling of love should be dynamic. Sparks should fly just like in the cartoons. Your heart should enlarge to three times its size and beat outside of your body. You should be able to stand up on the couch at the Oprah show and proclaim your love for that one special person. Come on, don’t tell me you didn’t think what Tom Cruise did was just a little bit adorable. That’s what it’s all about, folks. It’s all about love.

Happy Valentine's Day!
