To define love is an impossible task.

Each of our individual selves offer something entirely unique to this world. When you mesh your qualities with someone you admire, something magical happens. A new form of love is formed. A love that can only best be explained between you and your partner.

Love has been a muse for artists since the beginning of time and has inspired them in many forms. Sometimes, it feels like our words fall short of descriptions and our paintings or drawings only offer a glimpse of what we feel.

Love is always and forever. It is constantly flowing and finding new ways to present itself.

Romantic Love Blurred

When it comes to romantic relationships, the depiction of love has become blurred. Films give us an idea of how love should look and what is expected from you and your partner. This is no new thought; we know that Hollywood’s portrayal of romance fits into a single confined box and that anything outside of that is ‘wrong.’

One of the true benefits of being in love is how our attentiveness to our partner requires us to be present. We don’t fall in love with how a person looks at face value, but rather, how they look when they are taking a sip of coffee, treating strangers, reading a book, or tasting something new for the first time.

With presence we notice these things, and that is one of the biggest reminders here: when we fall out of presence, we begin to suffer. Not just in life, but also in our relationships and love.

One multi-talented artist, Philippa Rice, decided to depict her life in the form of comics with her real life boyfriend. She created a comic book titled Soppy, which contains simple enthrals delights of living with someone you love.

True love isn’t always about the big romantic gestures. Sometimes it’s about sympathizing with someone whose tea has gone cold or reading together and sharing a quilt. When two people move in together, it soon becomes apparent that the little things mean an awful lot. The throwaway moments in life become meaningful when you spend them in the company of someone you love.

These images not only remind us of our love for our partners but more importantly, to continue to be present when with them. While love is always present, if it is not nurtured and given attention to, it will dwindle in our perception and fade. The opportunity for something great will be lost, all because we chose not to be aware of the physical form of love in front of us.
