Because love is all there is (and love is enough).
alexander and suzanne met in a college classroom in philadelphia studying something or other about the media, art, money, and business. and cats and dogs. (huh?) we have loved each other since.
we have slept in many beds in many countries together, yet we are not lovers, in that sense. however, we love each other enough (tons and tons!) that we have a strong desire to keep in touch and communicate with each other, so we do it via this blog. suzanne currently writes from brooklyn, ny, and from her frequent travels – and alexander, writes from portland, or. though, we both seem to be developing lives that have us as pretty much vagabonds that spiral out of our respective homes and into the entire world. but at home, we sit exactly 2,898 miles from each other.
who are we? we are flowers on the side of the road. ‘yes’ and ‘joy’ are important to us. we will not capitalize, we may not re-read what we write, and we never won spelling bees. but we do hope you enjoy.
the world is getting larger, and we fear our ‘human-ness’ is growing smaller. this is our attempt to connect. we do love you and we do miss you, and we do think there is much more to life than we are generally able to find the time to enjoy, so this is our hand reaching out; come along with us on the journey! tell your friends to join us, and please comment and chime in.
and, even on the worst of worst days (we all have them!), remember-> >>>>AND WE LOVE!
