Love is the means by which two become one and yet are not alone.

Oh yes, Tobias!

I often say my wife is the better part of me. She is such a treasure there are times I can hardly bear to go to work and part from her. (Though her office would talk if I followed HER to work!)

And yet the tragic part of love, the agony, is playing out over at MadPriest's site where we have learned that Lisa's love Ian is dying. Her pain is raw and shows us the other side. WIth such pain ahead to pay for all the joy as the best part is ripped away....one wonders that we still let ourselves fall in love.

I have tried to get on an Episcopal/Anglican blog for three years. No one ever at home. Complicated to get on. Any advice?

Thanks IT. That is the tragic side of commitment -- the eventual limitedness of life itself, made real in the loss of one's love. And yet it is love towards which we find ourselves impelled and drawn.

Jack, I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "get on" a blog. Most of the blogs in my sidebar welcome comments, but I'm not sure if that's what you mean. I'm glad to help but I'm not clear on what you are seeking.
