First Comes Love:
I’d like to take a new spin on this opening line. First comes love… love of an idea, a talent, a place, a cause. Love of something other than ourselves. Something that moves us, inspires us, defines us. It is this first love, the love of music, humor, nature, art, writing, justice, faith … that sets us on a path. It is the thing that we pursue with all we are. This thing, this passion, this love – makes us feel wholly alive. It is a permanent part of our soul and we are reminded of what is eternal through it. The images below are of some amazing people (and pets) being exactly who they are, and loving life in a way that only they can.
