Love Is...

Morning Mast
...not dependent on the other person's feelings. Each of us is a vessel unto ourselves, no one's course is influenced by another ship, only by the water under us and the wind above us.
Sail your own ship, watch your own stars, pay equal respect to all the other vessels you encounter, obey Maritime rules. You are not the wind that blows my sails, nor are you the waves that rock my hull. Do not think you can read my charts from your deck, and let go of the belief that I chart my course according to yours.
There is enough transcendent beauty to fill the skies of every captain; no one can claim to own the stars.
