Portraits of Love

* (Photo credit below)

Today’s blog post is short on words, because the photos speak for themselves… more volumes than I could ever put into words. 

Love does not wish to be defined,

or squished into the limits of language,

or boxed in by labels, theories, or judgments.  

Love. Just.  IS.

Please take a few moments to see, really see — through the lens of LOVE, the portraits of these gay couples just after they were LEGALLY married in New York: 


… and remember: Love. Just. IS.   pass it on.

    Tears running down my cheeks…
    What joy emanates from the faces of those just married!
    And how contagious is that joy!

    It’s so simple. Being happy for others is really so simple.
