As the winter's first snowflakes drifted from the sky and blanketed town in a deceptive purity, a friend brought a gift to me from a distant and warmer place, dropping it into my open hands and causing love to cascade into this deceptive heart.



Deception is the real word for true love and friendship, I have learned with time; for it is in deceiving your own fear that you are able to love freely.

Then I think children are the most deceptive people out there because the little bugger covered in slobbery cracker, desparately trying to help me type right now, made me fall in love with him at first sight :)

Insightful as always dear friend!

Lots of snow coming here.For many of us fear stops us from opening our hearts to many who might mean the most to us if we did.I know i have let love pass me by a few times.

We are, after all, a product of our past. Some things just don't come very easily. :)
