The End is Near? Scientists Predict 5 Terrifying Ways the World Will and May Just End.

Ways the World Will and May Just End

We hear about the apocalypse in every religion- the end of the world and the start of the afterlife. The truth rings truer with scientists predicted causes of the world as we know it.

The End is Near? Scientists Predict 5 Terrifying Ways the World Will and May Just End.

Ways the World Will and May Just End

 

In almost every major world religion, it is believed with certainty that the world as we know it will one day come to an end.

 

However, skeptics have always arisen from science about the lack of plausibility in such a statement- words of unbelievers.

 

Contrary to the general belief of those who were against the theories and belief in the end of the world, scientists have actually begun to predict plausible causes for the end of the world- and these are only a few things that we see in the world on a daily basis ourselves.

 

  • Global Pandemic

    2

Almost every year do millions get affected by a superbug virus that needs to be contained. It is only a matter of time before these viruses become stronger than it is possible for humans to battle- taking the rest of the world to their graves if we are not prepared. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 2 million people get sick from such superbugs each year- and with the increase in migration of populations to urban centers, the threat for an outbreak and widespread effect is even greater.

 

The World Health Organization keeps a close watch on superbugs to ensure that they are controlled, followed, and able to be battled even in stronger forms. If these bugs become resistant to antibiotics, they can truly end the world as we know it, and all humanity within it.

 

 

  • Climate Change

3

Just another one of the many things we as humans have done to make our own lives worse on Earth through our pollution, policies, and inability to plan for the long run for our future generations- is global warming and climate change.

 

Climate change has the potential to cause large scaled wildfires and a lack of proper humidity levels and adequate fresh water supply with water contamination, atmospheric contamination, and the melting of glaciers. The fact that glaciers are melting poses a greater threat than simple flooding and major coastal cities going Atlantis.

 

Concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere are more compacted and worse than ever after thousands of years- and at this rate of pollution it can only destruct life and cause mass extinctions across the planet.

 

 

  • Ecological Catastrophe

4

 

The permanent reduction of ecological resources is greatly impacting the planet’s ability to sustain life. This means that the rate at which humans are destroying and producing and consuming natural resources is increasing at an alarming a rate- a rate that cannot be reciprocated in the replenishing of such resources.

 

Ecological collapse is a scientifically quick and disastrous event. Each economic system that is thriving on buying and selling at rapid speeds is contributing to this end, whether they care or like it or not.

 

 

  • Global Systems Collapse

5

 

A global systems collapse can be classified as a collapse of economy and society as it is in place, and although this definition is broad, it encompasses the possibility of chaos and discord between powers. This can mean war, a combination of ecological collapse and the loss of natural resources, and the inability to function or run societal systems.

 

Other impacts under this umbrella include the collapse of power grids, economic crises where inflation is extremely high and buying power disappears and the stock market vanishes into uselessness.

 

This is also seen quite clearly in the direction in which the globally interconnected society is heading, as the gap between classes is widening and the economy is heading into pitfalls.

 

  • Nuclear War

6

 

Although the previous predictions of the fate of our planet are more eventual steps that we as the human race have been taking slowly but surely, one of the most abrupt and destructive ends- that does not seem all too far away with nuclear warheads at the hand of President Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.

 

Only small nuclear conflicts in the past have created severe crises in birthrates, diseases, birth defects, and loss of life and natural habitats in areas affected (Hint: Hiroshima and Nagasaki- Pearl Harbor). Yet on a larger scale, the number of nuclear warheads existing on the planet currently has the potential to wipe off every living thing from every corner of the planet, hundreds of times over.

 

7

 

 

 

 

We are watching the world snowball to its end right under our noses- but can we really do anything to stop it except prepare for our afterlife?

 

Perhaps it is one cause or another- but one thing is for certain. The rate in which each of these problems are increasing by the minute, it is only a matter of time before an amalgamation of each plausible cause for the end of the world will be the true end.

The Art of Gift Giving- How to decide on the perfect gift for your loved one!

gift giving

 

We give gifts as a form of appreciation, to a person that we care for on a special occasion.

 

Be it for a religious holiday (Christmas, Eid), a birthday, a graduation, a marriage, a baby shower, any significant achievement- or even for the pure sake of appreciating someone and showing them your love- gift giving is a part of our everyday lives, whether we like it or not.

 

Gift giving is for sure, a way to create bonds, to enhance relationships, and to build  bridges between people in ways it is not often built without gifts.

 

Interestingly, I used to think that if a person loves you more for giving them gifts, then they seem to be materialistic, and focused on material gains and things rather than relationships.

 

The truth is, that for gift-giving to truly build bonds and add meaning to relationships, the very fact of giving a gift or the monetary amount of the gift does not matter as much as what gift you give.

 

In essence, it is actually the intention that counts, and what the gift means to a person.

 

There is an art to gift giving that can build your relationships and increase love and affection between the giver and the receiver, be it for a family member, a friend, or partner.

 

As a part of our society and culture, we are almost accustomed to giving gifts to the point that it is a part of our everyday lives, occasions come left and right and we are bombarded with opportunities to give and receive gifts.

 

How then, do we give gifts that actually build relationships and mean something, so much so that we go beyond the actual ritual of gift giving.

 

What is the art of gift giving?- you may ask.

 

There are just a few, simple rules to keep in mind when considering to give an artful, meaningful gift. Follow these tips, and you will never give a meaningless, useless, boring gift ever again!

 

  • Make Note of Likes, Wants, Wish Lists

 

This is by far the easiest way to try and get a gift for a loved one. When you are close to a person, it is natural to overhear them voice their desires, whetehr it is something they have wanted for a long time or have been shopping for, or even just a certain type of thing or themed item that they love.

 

Rather than letting it slip out of the other ear, keep these things in mind so that you have a wide range of gift possibilities for the next occasion!

 

 

  • Make something personal

 

This is one of my favorites. To give a gift is to give something that means something to both the giver and the receiver. You don’t have to be particularly artsy, but making something that means something will always build a stronger bond.

 

Personalize anything you can find. Maybe make a jar with motivational sayings or quotes for each day of the year. Or give a list of coupons that your loved one can redeem on your behalf, such as chores or massages. Put your loved one’s favorite quote on a frame, make them something personalized with their name if you are indeed the artsy type.

 

The possibilities are endless!

 

 

  • Plan a trip!

 

Sometimes, a surprise trip to someplace that your loved one has always wanted to visit is the best gift you can give! Especially for your partner, taking them on a getaway (when you know they are free of course!) is one of the best gifts you can give- the gift of experience and adventure!

 

Make sure to take note of places your loved one enjoys visiting, or would like to visit- so you can take them there!

 

 

  • Take them out for dinner, or make one at home at candlelight!

 

You can also take note of the foods your loved one enjoys the most. Take them out to that restaurant as a surprise, bring in takeout, or make the food you know they will love and have a candlelight dinner!

 

Whatever you do, make sure it is something that they enjoy. If you know they enjoy sitting under the stars, set up a blanket outside at night with a picnic of their favorite goodies!

 

  • Throw a surprise party with all of your loved ones!

 

Another surefire way to make a person feel loved and special is to throw them a surprise party. Even without going to extremes and spending lots of money, just inviting the people your loved one loves most- family, friends- the surprise and effort you put in to plan such a thing for them will make them happier than any gift will.

 

 

In the end, the true art of gift giving lies in the intention, and in the thought and planning of it- and sometimes, in the execution of it.

 

By taking note of the things and places and foods that your loved one loves the most, you can certainly make whatever occasion you are buying them a gift for, worth the effort!

 

Giving gifts needs to be more than the ritual of spending money. The thought is what counts, and it is the thought and emotion that embodies the process and action of gift giving that makes it so special.

 

So special, that once you master the art of gift giving, your relationships with your loved ones will grow and prosper with more appreciation, closeness and love!

 

What will YOU give your loved one as a gift in the next upcoming occasion?

Your Parents Then, You NOW: The Generation Gap

generation gap

Ever feel like the generation between your parents’ and yours is too wide to bridge? Read for some outright comparisons that should tickle your ponder-bones!

 

It is totally inevitable that almost every generation feels the strains and differences from the upbringing, expectations, and standards of the generation before them.  Your parents and elders seem to have a certain expectation of how you should grow up. You, on the other hand, feel that times are different now, and you need to be brought up with the time.

 

Sometimes, the generation gap feels all too real.

 

Does your parents’ generation and your generation feel as different as apples and oranges? Here are some stark oppositions to shed some light to the situation! It’s worth thinking about.

 

 

  • Parents vs. You

Here is the basic ultimate battle. No matter what, the laws of science dictate that your parents will always be a generation or two above you, no questions asked. The battle starts here, knowing that you actually ARE two different generations.

 

 

  • Conservative vs. Liberal

Isn’t it odd that the world- the more modern it becomes- the more libreral-er it is getting? From humble beginnings to egotistical end? That’s not a good sign. Or is it? Can it work the other way around? I’m pretty sure there are many ways to draw the line between the two!

 

 

  • Mature vs. Immature

Pfft, come on mom and dad. Of COURSE you are more mature than we are! You ARE older than us after all! Oh…do you mean at our age? Is 30 the new 20? …Sorry? But you can be the mature ones!

 

 

  • Curfew vs. Partying All Night

For some reason, happy lives were always linked to chastity…? Staying late doesn’t do much, it makes us feel YOUNGER in comparison to just how OLD mom and dad feel! Don’t you dare bring up rape. Or abduction. Or any other scary things that happen at 3 am after a drunk party. Carpe Diem, mom! Sieze the day! You only live once!

 

 

  • Selflessness vs. Selfishness

This can definitely be flipped sideways. A generation of so-called selfless people was pretty racist before some of the more recent flows of immigrants. But today? Seeing people stand up for other’s rights who are a different color than you? That must be driving you old-timers bonkers!

 

 

  • Healthy Food vs. GMO, Artifical Sugar, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Red Dye….

The list really does go on and on doesn’t it? This is something we can’t seem to beat, except that the trash actually tastes good, feels good, and keeps us coming back for more! There is nothing like addiction to keep an economy running! The Earth’s economy is at an all time low, they don’t seem to be getting business from the whole-ness and fill your stomach in one shot plot!

 

 

  • Focused vs. Unfocused

They worked hard, worked double or triple shifts, studied, went to classes, fought for a career when they didn’t have the money. What are we doing? Loaning the rest of our lives away for some party filled nights and high-class dorms. Living the life until we have to pay!

 

 

  • Nature vs. Technology

Sure, they saw the dawn of technology, but we are seeing the death of nature as we speak! Its not like the glaciers in Antarctica are important for our survival, neither are trees! We can live without oxygen, the next iPhone claims to provide it! Live, Love, Machines. Kill Trees.

 

 

  • Monogamous vs. Polyamorous

We seem to love everything these days, whatever makes our hearts beat a little faster. Forget the same gender, we are talking inanimate objects here! But who are we to judge? It’s not like we have the natural human race to continue or need a family to tie us down, we are a generation of free and appropriated love!

 

 

The generation gap is really, all too real. Can identifying only a small handful of the differences really help? That, my friends, is the unanswerable question!

 

Jokes aside, either side can be attributed with either sentiments- we are all victim to our subjectivities! How true it felt to you can say a lot about you and the particular generation before you!

 

It is a big wide world, and every Joe is not Shmoe! That is to say, everyone is different!

 

Take the information and do with it what you may- you may find it to ease relations and better yet, compromise between the two!

5 GENUINE Ways to Apologize for Your Mistakes!

Apologize for your mistakes

Feeling guilty for your mistakes? Don’t know how to put your apology into action? Find out how to GENUINELY apologize for your mistakes!

 

There are a lot of times- and a lot of reasons- when we find it difficult to apologize for our mistakes. Whether it’s ego, pride, or extreme guilt, we swallow our sorry’s and hope the other person will forgive us without us asking.

 

The thing is, that unless we apologize, the person whose feelings we hurt or offended is not very likely to know that we were sorry, let alone forgive us instantaneously!

 

So are you dealing with guilt and know that you need to say sorry, but don’t know how to?

 

 Here are some genuine ways to apologize to any person for any mistake!

 

  • Understand the other person’s emotions- put yourself in their shoes!

This might be a no-brainer because in order to even want to read this article you have a substantial amount of understanding to fuel your apology and guilt. Put yourself in the shoes of the person you hurt, understand where they are coming from and how you may have felt in that situation. If you would have felt differently, try to understand it from their perspective. This will help make not only the way you sound when you apologize genuine, but also how you feel as well! Intentions count!

 

 

  • Make yourself understand why what you did or said was wrong or hurtful!

This is very strongly connected to the idea of sympathy and empathy. Taking a step back from the other person’s emotions, understand what may have been wrong with what you said or did. Even if there is not much wrong to it, make yourself understand that doing something to hurt another person’s feelings is also immoral! Understanding why something is wrong makes sure you apologize in a genuine way, and brings out your moral insight!

 

 

  • Rehearse!

Getting the pre-game jitters! Try rehearsing your emotions and understanding in words that would be helpful. Practice on another friend or family member for good measure! If it is important for your own mental sanity to apologize properly, make sure you have at least one mental rehearsal down to make sure you cover all bases and apologize in a genuine way!

 

 

  • Speak from your heart!

If you are truly feeling guilty and remorseful, being genuine and speaking from your heart when you apologize will not be a difficult thing to do! Speak what you feel and show your remorse. Sometimes the pain of the person inflicting pain is worse than the one with the pain- show that you feel what they felt and more! To apologize in a genuine way is to speak from your heart!

 

 

  • Be confident and humble

Yes these sound quite paradoxical, but it is true that in apology, confidence and humility go hand in hand. Be confident and genuine- don’t forget the other person’s emotions, but don’t be afraid to speak from your heart. Ironically, guilt is nothing to be ashamed of! Also remember to be humble. You are expressing your guilt, not a success. Know you wronged the other person and use that and keep your head down low.

 

 

Us human beings are definitely not perfect, and we make mistakes that are sometimes painful to others, and that directly hurt those around us. Sometimes, even those that we love.

 

 

If you truly feel guilty for something you did wrong, following these 5 GENUINE ways to apologize for your mistakes will successfully help you to not only plan and execute your apology, but do it from your heart and come to terms with your guilt as well!

5 Defining Qualities of a TRUE Friend

Qualities of a TRUE Friend

Don’t know which one of your friends is a true friend? Want to learn how to BE a true friend? Read for the 5 qualities that define what a TRUE friend really is!

 

Friends come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and through a range of closenesses, understandings, and sympathies to you. You can have a childhood friend who knows your every dirty little secret, a newer college classmate who knows your whims and personality but not your depth, a new friend at work who knows what makes you smile and your tone of voice.

 

Whatever the case, friends are friends- and once you call a person a friend, there are some ground rules you must set out for yourself if you desire to be a true friend, regardless of how close that particular friend is to you through the broad spectrum of friendship defining qualities.

 

Whether it is to learn how to be a true friend yourself or how to identify a true friend in your midst, here are a couple of qualities that best define who a true friend is!

  • Listening

It is important for a true friend to truly listen- not just to the words spewing out of your mouth, but your tears and body language, understanding what you mean to say and share, and support your thoughts and aid you to the best decision for you. A friend is a true friend when they not only listen with their ears, but with their heart and soul- truly caring and having empathy for you.

 

 

  • Accepting YOU for who YOU are

Friends always have differences- even the closes of them. For this reason, it is always best to not overlook differences but appreciate and understand them, and focus on the positives and the similarities. After all, no one is perfect because perfection is subjective- and striving to be perfect in any person’s eyes is a fool’s play. A true friend will understand this and accept you for who you are, differences and faults be damned.

 

 

  • Giving true advice

A true friend can only give true advice. They will not allow you to be deceived by your own rose-colored glass, and will ensure that you see things for the truth that they are, given that it will not devastate you. Taking into consideration your emotions, a true friend will give you- whilst balancing what they know about you and the world- the advice that is truly what is best for you, which is not always the most comforting thing for you to hear, but the thing you need to heart the most from someone who cares for you.

 

 

  • They make the effort

A true friend is not the one you say every single day- rather, the one who makes an effort to be in your life no matter how hectic life can be. This does not mean to abandon all hope of their own lives- but to balance time and remember you often. This can be a text every once in awhile, a phone conversation, a night out or a brunch at one or the other’s house. Friendship means effort, and sometimes even the tiniest of efforts count, and a true friendship can be maintained no matter how long it has passed since the two of you have been in contact!

 

 

  • There when you need them most

It is one thing to care about a friend and show it to them, and another to be there for them when they need it once. In this battle-ridden journey called life, we are all doomed to face tragedy and difficulty one day or another. A true friend is one who recognizes what is tragedy and when you need them most, understanding not only warning signs but making sure to make extra effort, more than usual, to be there for you, be your aid and support when you need them the most.

 

 

Whether you have a handful of friends or are acquainted with every person on your block, it is always important to remember who your true friends are, because true friends are the ones who will matter in the long run.

 

 

With this short list of identifiers, you can easily discern from among those around you the true friends, and decide how you can be a true friend for them as well!

10 FOOLPROOF Ways To Love With All Your Heart- No Regrets

ways to love

“The only thing we can never get enough of is love. And the one thing we never give enough is love”

-Henry James

Love someone so much that your heart overflows with emotion? Don’t know how to express that love! Read for FOOLPROOF ways to express your love with all your heart- no regrets!

 

As in the words of Henry James, love is phenomenon that we take, take, and take. No one can ever get enough of love, and unfortunately, no one never can give enough love. This common, recurring problem of expressing love is what causes distance, causes argument, and breaks apart people who love each other with such ardor, it is as if they are made from one soul.

 

It is no joke to say that love is one of the most crucial forms of expression and emotion to human life. The bond, emotion, and connections felt between people who love each other, or by any person who loves another, is unparalleled and cannot be compared to any other.

 

But to risk losing it all- for inability to properly express and communicate the fire in your heart?

 

Is is here that the issue arises- wherein with this powerful sense of this emotion comes a lack of understanding. How do we channel such an emotion? How do we show the person that we love just how much we love them?

 

In other words, how can we make our love tangible, and not lose the one we love to such extremes simply because we do not know how to express our love?

 

At times the idea of love seems so fleeting that it is almost impossible to pin down. The truth is- love is one of the simplest emotions to express, if you know the right way to express it. Love is more than just physical intimacy, it is more than just being “together”- it is being a team and working together in all parts of life- regardless of the costs.

 

For fear of becoming too romantic and ambiguous- let’s turn our minds to some practical applications of humanity’s most powerful and driven emotion.  Here is a list of (just a few!) FOOLPROOF ways to channel the love you feel for your significant other, and how to let them know what they mean to you!

 

  • Be Selfless

Being in any relationship is a commitment to care for the other person more than you care for yourself, and to put them first. This doesn’t mean to neglect yourself entirely- as you can never give love properly if you are not self-sufficient and confident in your own shoes. However, it is important to never be selfish in giving your love. Don’t love to get love, love for the sake of giving love. Give attention, care, and love without expecting in return, and without any personal benefit other han showing the person you love how much you love them!

 

 

  • Learn to Compromise

The key to any successful relationship is to compromise. No two people can ever be entirely the same, or agree on every single thing in the most perfect or exact way. For this reason, choose your battles carefully, and learn to decide what comes first. Think about the argument or issue at hand, and decide if it is a deal breaker that you cannot live without winning in it. If you want to keep a relationship going strongly, learn to compromise and cooperate.

 

This, of course, goes both ways. Meeting each other halfway is always the best thing- and if you and your significant other can compromise on the basis of what means more to the other, and what will not hurt your partner or damage your relationship, then you are on the road to relationship bliss!

 

There is no better way to express what someone means to you than to make sacrifices and compromise on things that may be important to you. Compromising on certain things shows just how much more the value and importance of your significant other is than many, many other things!

 

 

  • Express your emotions

The issue of being unable to express emotion often boils down to ego- or even the inability to understand or come to terms with your own emotions. You love your significant other? Tell them, and show them in every way possible. You are upset at something they say, tell them what you feel and why!

 

Rather than allowing outside interference- which can severely damage the mutual trust built in a relationship- talk to your significant other about how you feel in a calm manner. Express what you feel and way- communication is key. And more than anything else, constant communication with each other is crucial.

 

 

  • Maintain physical intimacy

This is truly a no-brainer. When you love someone, it is almost natural that the next, and often first step is to maintain physical intimacy as a way of showing love. While only using physical intimacy to show love is not quite the best option- it is easy to become almost roommates after some time in a long term relationship. Keep the fire alive to keep the love alive! It does not have to be as passionate as it always was, but maintaining physical intimacy and showing love physically and through even the smallest of actions is the perfect way to show your love!

 

 

  • Keep close in EVERY way

It is very common to find that people in a relationship tend to be close only physically, and in romantic ways. In all other parts of life, they keep a distance. However, this is not advisable if you want a relationship to last. Stay close in every way possible. Share each other’s’ worries, pour your heart and emotion to the other person, never allow secrets to come between the two of you. Get rid of all sense of formality- date your partner, work to court your partner no matter how many years go by- but do not ward toward stranger territory if you want your love to be truly tangible.

 

There are so many ways to define “closeness”- make sure you are close to your significant other in every way you possibly can. Don’t just be lovers- be best friends, be partners, work as a team. Staying close, and keeping your partner close is one of the best ways to express your love.

 

 

  • Work together as a team

Based off the point made previously about closeness, working together as a team is worth mentioning separately because of just how important it is in a successful relationship. Rather than considering each other as just together in the sense of physical intimacy, remind yourself that everything you face, you are facing together.

 

Being in a relationship means to choose each other as partners in life, and not just as a booty call. There is no competition between each other- if one wins, so does the other. Likewise, if one loses, so does the other. To truly show your love to your significant other, include them in every part of your life, and work together with them on both their things and your things as well. Working as a team is probably the most practical way to express your love- and allows your love to grow in almost all directions.

 

 

  • Use kind words

No matter how close you become to the person that you love, it is crucial to remember that they do  have a heart that is sensitive- moreso sensitive because of the love between you. It is important for this very reason- if you want to truly express your love- to remember to never speak harshly, and to be kind and loving in your words. It is one thing to show love through your actions and care, but it is another thing to disregard the power of language.

 

This can even go on to romantic language, but it must be kept as a priority to express your love in kind words in all situations, whatever you wish to discuss or say, no matter how you are feeling. Sure, it is normal to be upset now and then, but learning to control your anger is key in expressing your true emotions of love.

 

For your significant other who does not have actual access to your heart, your tongue is one gateway to understanding your emotions. If you use your tongue with kindness, your love will be much more tangible. If you use your tongue and speak harshly, it can become almost hard to believe your love, no matter how much you prove it in other ways.

 

 

  • Be Understanding

Just as working together as a team is a great way to express your love and make it tangible, so is being understanding and caring. Use empathy to understand your significant other’s problems and situations. This goes hand in hand with compromise. Rather than reading from the surface, delve in deep to your significant other’s emotions, nature, and situation.

 

Understand at a fundamental level what is in their heart and what is happening with them- because as partners, everything pertains to the both of you, and everything must be solved mutually. To understand is to show that you love and value your significant other to the most basic degree, to every ounce of their soul inside and out no matter what.

 

 

  • Listen

It is critical to listen in order to understand- no doubt. But the way in which you listen, and the times that you listen are also key for your partner to receptively sense that you care for them and love them. Listen to not only their words with an open, understanding, and compromising heart– but listen to their moods, their gestures, their physical language, their expressions. Listen to them on the most innate level of listening, and make them feel heart.

There is no better way for a person to feel loved than for them to feel heard– especially if it is on every level! Listening to your significant other shows concern and care, and expresses just how much they are valued!

 

 

  • Be Adventurous- Be At Home

Yes- I am quite well aware that this is a paradox. But- contrary to popular belief- life is a series of paradoxes, and over the time you spend with your significant other, you both will experience ups and downs, lefts and rights of all sorts of moods and mindsets. For this reason, it is important to be a source of comfort for your significant other- make them feel at home. Home is a person, home is almost never a place. A house loses its value when the person or people that make it a home are absent.

 

At the same time, when life is too stagnant, be adventurous! Spontaneously decide to do something you have never done, go to a place that the either or both of you have never gone. Surpass your barriers and reach outside your comfort zones. Expressing love is, quite intriguingly, critical to both being a home and being a partner in adventure. Experiencing both states of mind together, and being at ease with such expression, is a beautiful way to express your love and make it tangible in both experience, and togetherness of action!

 

Love is the most powerful of emotions- and yet, love is the most simplest of emotions to express. There are hundreds of ways to express your love, and not all of them can ever be consolidated onto one list.

 

However, if you use the aforementioned FOOLPROOF ways to express your fancy, your loved one will have no doubt of your love and will express their love in return with equal earnest, if not exponentially more!

 

Sorry Henry James, but I think I speak for all of us when I say that we can express the love that seemed so fleetingly impossible to express, and give more than enough where it is due!
