I Love You Simply

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.” —

Pablo Neruda

Aww the romance in this quote is sweet. It’s got the feel of a deep connection only lived out in fantasies. Some fantasies give us a healthy hope for the future. They’re great as long as we don’t let expectation kill our reality. Some might question whether fantasy is our true reality. I mean it’s a thoughtful question. Where do we go when we sleep? Another good one. Anyways point being, deep connection and intimacy are both really nice things.

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.

  1. For me, I always feel it. Maybe it comes from my years of unwarranted loneliness. When I write, it feels like it comes from the soul. When I started here, I was horribly depressed. I wrote about love because it’s what I missed most. I was conflicted because I couldn’t separate my feelings from something derived from something so special. Poetry is different than fiction. Still, I have trouble finishing my main work because I don’t want to put my characters through the tragedy that I’ve devised for them.

    I, fortunately, have advisors. They know me and the WordPress community. They often give me a heads up on how I’m doing. It helps having support!
