“I want to fall head over heels, fall so passionately and deeply in love that I don’t know what’s happening. I want to be smitten in love, to feel that a train hit me, and for better or worse, I am in for the ride. The exhilaration of the ride, the excitement, the passion. I want all of that, but not just the love and passion. I want to feel; I want the waves of emotion to flow through me, from the soft lapping of waves to the beasts of tides rising high above the horizon.”
