I love you!

This page is not concerned with love in the traditional sense. I am concerned with love as a social philosophy and practice. Not something passive that you "fall" into, but a choice that one makes every day. Love is not an experience reserved just for the lovers; it is something you share with your brother, your friend, your neighbor, and so on. The misconception that love is something to be reserved for romantic or familial bonds is a great disservice to all of us. We would all be better off if we challenged our current understanding of love: what it is, what it means, what it looks like. My being a sentimental sap is neither here nor there; love is real, and in order for us to reap the bounties of love, a shift in our understanding is required. Consider this my invintation for you to do just that.

Wether you're already on board with me or you're recontextualizing love for the first time, I've gathered relevant material here. If you have any recs or want to discuss anything here, please don't hesitate to reach out!
