Look out! It’s all around you!

I’m not a big fan of the statement “love is all you need” but I am a big fan of love itself and my only modification would be to say love is should be all you need. I’m also not a big fan of the movie Love Actually (sorry Hugh) but I am a big fan of the leading man’s opening monologue:

Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there – fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge – they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around.

Wishing you lots of love this season! xoR
