Love is one of the most profound emotions known to human beings.
A great deal of evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship begins in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, protection, stimulation, and social contact.

In the 1970s and early 1980s, when running distances like that (26.2 miles) was considered unhealthy, unwise and kind of crazy.The lessons I've learned are not new revelations that came out of nowhere in the desert.Rather, they were seeds of thought a long time in the making.During Burning Man, opportunities kept presenting itself to enable me to turn existing seeds of knowledge into practice. It is where knowledge meets action where wisdom is born.To love and to be loved is a privilege that grants the power to transform lives - our own and others.Let's not forget- it is an honor being offered wise, patient, kind, humble, and authentic love. The body-numbing, time-stopping, paralyzing feeling of hearing your spouse say they are no longer in love with you.
