Happy Monday!

Hello everyone!

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I certainly did, although it was a bit warm out (if 90 can be considered "a bit warm"). I am all settled in up in Boston, I love my view from my room! My desk overlooks the street and I can easily people watch on those walking below. I feel very artsy/college-y/intelligent for some reason, perhaps it has to do with my 19 (!!!) school books perched above my desk or my many postcards posted on the bulletin board underneath the books. Perhaps worldy is the word I am looking for.

Anyways, I know you're not all here to read my gibber jabber all day long. This postcard comes from V. in Russia. The text reads as follows:

For me, love is: when there are not limits, when there is no doubt, when there is no prohibition. Only respect, and what makes you happy! In Russia, there is a saying: love of evil-will love goat (haha). It means that love is blind.

Thank you so much V. for your postcard! I love the Russian saying :) I wish more people would consider love as blind. Love should be blind, blind to race, gender, social class, nationality.

I'm going to leave you all with that for today. Feel free to comment with your favorite saying or quote about love, or anything else you feel is relevant!

Have an awesome week!
