A Pocket Full of Murder

What is love, anyway?

And if that subject line started Howard Jones running through your head, you are a true child of the 80's. :)

Seriously, though, I'm speaking to a women's group in just over a week's time and the subject is "love". I thought it might be interesting to start with some definitions and opinions from the general public, and since we're such an articulate lot here on LJ, where better to solicit some?

So. How would you define and/or describe love, in two sentences or less?

Any responses I do use will be kept strictly anonymous, so feel free to speak your mind. Thanks! I look forward to hearing what some of you have to say.

I just received the loveliest surprise in the mail -- a huge box from Cook's Corner which turned out to contain a gift basket consisting of a stoneware batter bowl, an ergonomically designed whisk, a tea towel, some yummy-sounding pancake mixes, two kinds of flavoured coffee, an antique-replica tin full of premium steel-cut oats, and a bottle of cherry-flavoured pancake syrup. Considering that I'd been feeling rather down and sorry for myself this morning, the unexpected parcel was just what I needed to brighten up my day.

The only thing is, there was no note in the box and no information as to the identity of the sender, so I'm not sure who to be grateful to! avarill, was it you? If so, thank you very much!
