Romantic love has always taken my attention except that this is not true. It is the truths of the universe that have always taken my attention, and it is the simple fact that I study you so closely that I see the whole universe inside of you. It is a dangerous game when I begin to believe that romance is the only place where universal truths exist: they exist in everything, especially nature, and I need only to give the tree or flower or frog my undying attention and observation like I give so readily to you, to see that they too, hold the entire universe, and I too, am in love with the tree.
