What does “in love” feel like to you?
There are so many different types of love, so many different feelings that come and go.
There is the love I have for family, with feelings of familiarity, desires to protect and share, a warmth in the chest.
There are the feelings of sexual love. These are the most powerful feelings I have ever felt. The love that I feel for Ailsa is hard to put into words.
At its peak, it just overwhelms all other sensation with a warmth, a tension, an aliveness, a presence, a sense of extreme desire fulfilled. Words cannot do it justice, except to say that it is beyond anything I even imagined possible at age 40.
