Who am I? A person who loves and desires to be loved — Jodi Picoult: “People always say that, when you love someone, nothing in the world matters. But that’s not true, is it? You know, and I know, that when you love someone, everything in the world matters a little bit more.” — dedicated to Jeff Lynne/ELO — tune Telephone Line 37 yrs. ago today — Steven Kalas: “Human beings are created for relationship. Without you, there is no meaningful ‘me.’ How I experience my life is, in the end, inseparable from how I experience you. Said yet another way: We’re here to learn to love and be loved. That’s it. Every other dimension of life — job, money, golf game, emptying the kitchen trash — is only important as it serves the end of how and why you are related to others. I know this because I spent years working for hospice. Dying people never revel in (or regret) how often they vacuumed. They revel in (or regret) who they became in meaningful relationships!”
