Swoon

Listening to to Persuasion by Jane Austen puts my focus on the purity of the interaction between men and women.

And I can't help it.

I'm still weak-kneed and breathless by Captain Wentworth's and Anne Elliot's enduring devotion. Their poorly-mended broken hearts, their painful side-long glances, and a love that spanned time and distance, is all I need to melt my heart.

Lately, I'm of the mind that endurance and perseverance is where the real romance is hidden. Let them fall in love at first sight, or in the second year of friendship, but give your heroes enough ballast to last beyond the obstacles ahead.

True and lasting love exists and I am reinvigorated in my position to point it out.

You know, as soon as I catch my breath and find my footing.
