Hello once again from the wonderful world of Holly Cow. This week's entry is all about LOVE. What is love? To define love is a task best left to philosophers, heavy thinkers, and people with more life experience than I have. A quote from Paramahansa Yogananda (a pioneer of modern Yoga) : "To describe love is very difficult, for the same reason that words cannot fully describe the flavor of an orange. You have to taste the fruit to know its flavor. So with love."
Trying to define love is like trying to catch sunshine in a jar. Everyone has their own interpretations of love and their own understanding of what love is. Acceptance, patience, attraction... Love is many things to many people, but it is what it is... I'm just a simple cow, I don't have all of the answers to a question like "What Is Love?" so I'm not going to try to define it. But I know it's a good thing.
A lot of my friends have managed to capture thoughts and images that, in their own unique way, help give definition and meaning to "love". Here are some of my favorite examples of "LOVE" designs by some of my favorite people. I love you all!
