"Do you believe in love at first sight?" she asked, already expecting my practicality to take its form and form the words she thought I'd say, but instead...I said: "I believe in love. That's the beginning and the end. I don't really care how it comes into my life. Whether it's in an instant or over time, whether it's at a distance or in the flesh, whether it's upside down or right side up. I don't care if I'm falling in love or rising up to it. Love is love and its possibilities are endless. So I believe in love. I believe in all the ways it can come to me. I believe in love at first sight and I believe in love over time. I believe in love at a distance and I believe in love in the flesh. Whether I'm right side up or upside down, whether I'm falling into it or rising up to meet it, I believe in love, in all its possibilities. "
