I like to think that love will conquer all. I like to believe that the more of us believe this, the more true it becomes. If we’re not there yet  — love victorious and everlasting; love unconditional; and it’s abundantly evident we’re not — still, I like to believe we’re en route. You have to have the long view.

Meanwhile, love’s healing, conquering power does hold true for me, my beloved, and the family we’ve hatched (with the help of what else? love!).  Sometimes, when push comes to shove — and daggone there’s been a lot of shoving lately — I have to feel that that’ll do.

Shoe 2 being: the Supreme Court’s decision on whether or not this was fair and right.
