"There is no point being around flowers and not giving oneself time to smell them and inhale their intoxicating nectar anymore than there is purpose to being alive and not living the dream.
When I think back on all the best occasions in my life, I have never felt more alive than during those times when love has been the strongest emotion in my heart. Whether it has been times when I've been passionately in love with a woman, seeing the birth of my children, during my wedding day with Sheila, observing the selfless deeds of another person or simply enjoying the splendour of Nature itself: all of these life events have been filled with love for me.
Therefore, to me 'feeling alive' is synonimous with 'feeling love' for all manner of people and life's events and without the emotion of love being available to you and your experiences, there can be no life worthy of living." William Forde: May 24th, 2015.
