The "L" Word
by Rich Hall
We let the word "love" seduce us. We hear it so much in our lives, myth
and music that its power far exceeds its potential.
For most of us, hearing the word "love" is more important than what's
behind it. Sure, we want the "caring" and "feeling" stuff, but if it
doesn't come wrapped in that shiny, satin gift wrap paper called "love"
we won't accept it.
You know what a mightier word than "love" would be? "Loke," which is
"love" and "like" combined. But, if someone gazed into your eyes and
said, "Baby, I loke you," you'd just walk away laughing like a hyena.
Tragically, you would have frittered away a gift greater than love
itself. God, are we spoiled.
