"The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them." -- Thomas Merton

I don't have much to say today in this space. Had a terrible evening with Tara last night, by far our worst date night ever. It seems lately that everything that comes out of my head causes trouble. Apparently what I say isn't as important as the state of mind I'm in when I say them. Love seems to be causing me more pain than joy these days.

I think it's time for one of my enforced blogging breaks, at least until August 4. See you all sometime after that.
