Pride Blog Hop: What is Love?

Divine Magazine are holding a Pride Blog Hop tour about Love.

It's so difficult to write a blog post about love. How do you define such a huge concept as love? There are so many different facets to one simple word and every time I sat down to write something I found myself writing huge essays.

Then I visited the town where most of my family is from and we visited the cemetery to check in on a gravestone for my great grandparents who are buried together. The names on the stone are fading with age; they died in 1974. This is the story that no one outside of the family knows.

My great-gran died in August 1974. She was an old lady, with children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and she lost her life to cancer. Within 4 months, December 1974, my great-granddad had passed away also. There was no real reason for this. He simply gave up; his heart broken. Beneath this grave, with its fading tombstone lies a love-story that most of the world doesn't know. 

But I know and how can I not write romance with a happy ever after when I have that story in my family history?

  1. It'd have to be a cheesy 80's ballad to represent a love in a song for me - I do it for you, Bryan Adams perhaps? Thinking of songs is not something I'm good at!

  2. Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran just does it for me!

  3. I've always loved Frank Sinatra's Fly me to the moon.


  4. I'm a Johnny Mathis and Nat King Cole fan.
