Love is on my mind
I was out for Sushi last night at an amazing sushi place in Montecito called Sakana. So good! I've heard it's one of the best in the U.S. so next time Nathan Holritz is in town I'll have to have him verify that since he is the authentic master sushi tester. A lot of the conversations I've been having lately have been about love and relationships and I'm reading this book called "A Year with C.S. Lewis" and he's been talking a lot about love too and he says,
"Love as distinct from "being in love" - is not merely a feeling. It is a deep unity maintained by the will and deliberately strengthened by habit."
I got asked an interesting question and I often get asked questions about being single and it kinda cracks me up. Actually earlier this week my buddy Deyl asked me if I wanted to get married *not to him* and I kinda laughed and he scolded me because he said I always laugh when he asks stuff like that and I guess it makes him think that I don't put time into that part of my life which is kinda true but I think I've been giving it more thought lately and realizing that Love will probably come after a commitment, through maintaining it and strengthening it which is what has been so difficult for me to commit to.
Anyway, last night I was asked,
"On a scale from 1 to 10 how content are you being single?" 1 being not content at all - and 10 being totally content.
What do you think I answered and what do you think about this?
