There are all kinds of metaphors used to describe love. “The road to love” love this, love that… But I believe it isn’t a nice paved smooth surface. I think it is more accurate to describe love as being a “hike”. Sure it sounds like crap, the “hike to love”… but I think it is more suitable. Hikes take some effort to complete, they can be slippery, torturous, they wind up and down, you can injure yourself and at times become lost. Stick with it though, and you can see some beautiful things.
I’m happy to have found a great partner to hike with…in spite of the rises and dips in the terrain the journey remains a thing of beauty. (Yes. A little sappy, but Valentine’s is coming up…:P)
