In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month I post a blog each day with a reflection about breast cancer. The reflections all stem from something in the play. (All quotes are from lines in the play).
Day 12: Love “At 20 years old I don’t think we understood what love really means.” The Actual Dance
Yesterday I spoke about sex and I said that in retrospect of 50 years of marriage, the last 16 years post double Mastectomy, and my personal journey with The Actual Dance I have come to understand a (if not “the”) difference between sex and love. Today it is love’s turn.
Here is what I have come to learn about Love from writing and performing The Actual Dance
Life exists within each of us -- a form of the Divine.
A tangible essence of who we are.
Love is when our essence became entwined.
Each an equal half of the other.
"I love you" simply awakens the US in you and me.
From Sam to Susan
