LOVE is a good place to BEGIN and a tragic place to END

Khalil Gibran actually appears at the end of my soon-to-be released audiobook,  The Not-So-Innocents Abroad


 In my horror anthology,
Silhouettes in the Key of Scream,
 I use a quote of his to lead off one of the stories.  


I recently realized with a start that Khalil Gibran's thoughts 

on the uncertainties of love run through three of those tales of horror.


Think not you can direct 
the course of love, for love, 
if it finds you worthy, 
directs your course.”

He wrote of the precarious balance between intimacy and independence in healthy relationships.

(And how many of those have 
you seen in your own life?)

“Love one another but make not a bond of love: 
let it rather be a moving sea 
between the shores of your souls.”

HOW DO YOU DELINEATE 
LOVE AND INDEPENDENCE
IN YOUR STORIES?
