This book celebrates the

"warm and fuzzy

and cold and hard and bitter

and sweet and euphoric

and torturous world of the

hopelessly romantic heart."


A kiss can write a secret.

It never hurt as good again.

- Marc Ecko

Found true love; married someone else.

Butterflies still kicking after ten years. - Lisa Taylor

People can't want what they want.

- Dr. Drew Pinsky

Will always follow you. On Twitter.

- Mircea Lungu

May I have the last dance?

- Robert Hass

Never should have bought that ring.

She kissed me and said yes.

Married Russian. Brush teeth with vodka.

My anniversary is tomorrow; we were married on January 14th, 1989. That is twenty years for us! That deserves some special thought and a return visit to add my own love story in six words!

Thanks for visiting!
