Time Out---For Love?
There is no better place to escape to when you need those moments to just make it all go---away. People all around us are losing their jobs and have fallen to hard times. Take a few moments and curl up on that old frayed couch or recliner and start reading a love story.
Some people prefer to only read non-fiction and that is their choice. Yet, those same people have loved or have been loved sometime in their lives. It is said that, "everyone loves a lover."
Ask yourself three things, (Do you believe in true love?) (Do you believe in love at first sight) (Do you believe in love lasting forever?) History has proven to us that love stores are immortal.
Shakespeare brought us the most famous lovers---Romeo and Juliet! Although this love story was depicted in tragedy, it in its own way was an everlasting love.
Shakespeare went on to dramatize the true love story of two historical characters, Antony and Cleopatra. The fell in love at first sight. The relationship of Antony and Cleopatra showed the great sacrifices that love can demand.
Antony and Cleopatra's powerful and historical love story has graced many a stage all over the world. Great love demands great sacrifices.
Yes, we all want to love and to be loved, but in today's world these love stories are sometimes hard to put on the stage of our lives, with 42% of all marriages ending in divorce.
No! We all need that love that only two people can find together. So when these tough times confront some of us, just open that front cover of a good romance novel and just maybe you can escape for a short time and even learn a few things.
I am a great fan of historical romances and I know many of you are too. Also many of us not only read all genders and categories of romance but we write them or as many of you have mentioned that your are in the process of writing that first novel. History has taught us many things and one is---love is not dead.
I have met many very talented writers here on the hub-pages---men and women and many mention the fact that they are writing a novel or have written one. We are all following our dreams in one way or the other. Yes, dreams and goals do come true and until the do appear, just find that quiet corner and open that book to Chapter One and tomorrow will be a brighter day.
