One cannot refuse to eat just because there is a chance of being choked. --- Love is a great risk, but not loving is of greater risk - even though you may have been hurt badly before - a great love will come to you soon and you must be ready to accept it.
I couldn't believe my eyes when I read this today because next Monday I'm going to Victoria to visit someone that I met a few months ago. I was supposed to meet him over a year ago, but circumstances intervened and I had to cancel. Then we got together for lunch when he was in town on his way to another nearby city and we got along famously. He phoned many times and then suddenly, nothing. Turns out he was very sick and had to be hospitalized. But now we're meeting up again to spend the day and I'm a bit excited. Even if he's not "the one" I know that I'm at least finally open to the possibility of new love. Wish me luck.
