Third Post Thursdays – A Response

So I don’t usually post three posts in one day, but today, I showed a friend of mine There, I’d Find Love, and he instantly sent me this response:

“Love, like the ocean, has depths only the observer can see… Feel. The pressure, the cold, the undeserving feeling of being there. The thought, “If they weren’t here” lingers like the blackness in the water surround. Being in love breaks the way we think; knowing this depth is knowing ourselves, understanding ourselves, reflecting on the fact that nothing here matters but us. Occasionally we see the fears of this water due to its vastness, but without love… We are open to all the water’s whims. The water is dark, cold, empty, but only if we experience through the same lens… Without the accompaniment of another soul, wandering the desolation.” -Kellan Rothfus

This friend of mine is the most brilliant man I’ve met in my life. If you haven’t heard of him yet, you soon will.

After reading this, I question whether or not I’ve ever been in Love, or understand it in the slightest. All I know is I have a lot to learn. Especially from him.
