We are in love (?)

My mom and dad didn’t seem very much in love with each other.  Not that love you read about in books and pine for in the movies anyway.  They seemed to have more pressing things on their minds, like getting that rent paid and buying groceries, and keeping their American Dream from getting dragged through the mud.

Thirty years later, I think I finally have a pretty good handle on what love is, as I’ve traversed and made it through its dizzying maze.    Unless I’m still dizzying through…
