love can be mended, always mended


"love is like a bowl
so when you break it
glue it together
if it won't hold water
fill it with apples"

This is one of my favorite quotes. My favorite song about love in marriage is "Funny Valentine."

Perfection, for me, is the enemy of love. But once we break our perfect image, we find another use for the thing we have. So much of love is being willing to glue it back together when we break it.

I often say that love is loyalty. So much of love is waking up every day and deciding to love.

I wonder if I woke up today deciding to love.

About the Author

Hi. My name is Jeremiah John. I'm a sf/f writer and activist.

I just completed a dystopian science fiction novel. I run a website which I created that connects farms with churches, mosques, and synagogues to buy fresh vegetables directly and distribute them on a sliding scale to those in need.

In 2003, I spent six months in prison for civil disobedience while working to close the School of the Americas, converting to Christianity, as one does, while I was in the clink.
