About Love Delivery
“LOVE” a most elusive concept that every one of us ponders at one time or another. As Michael Franti (of Spearhead fame and a spokesman for all that is good) says, “LOVE is the shit that makes life bloom. You never know when you might step in it!” We know what it is. We know it when we feel it…but, have you ever tried to describe or define it? I have spent too many years simply trying to understand it. To try and define it here for you would be like a blind man describing the beauty of the sun’s reflections on a ripping ocean (ok, maybe just a severely near-sighted man). I intended to start this dialogue between you and I with some deep poetic imagery and a clever analysis of how and why an organic fruit salesman should call himself LOVE. The fact is, for thousands of years, Poets, Mystics, Artists, Religious Doctrines, and even Scientists have tried to define this word “LOVE” to mostly impotent, inept attempts. After much rumination and a great deal of intense meditation, how would I, a middle-aged “self-professed hippy” trump thousands of years of transcendent and truly much more able, articulate thought than my own? That’s easy! I’ll do it by stealing from one of the few, true icons in my life. I’d like to quote this man, a man who was a guiding beacon, by this life, in my life.
LOVE IS REAL, REAL IS LOVE.
LOVE IS FEELING. FEELING LOVE.
LOVE IS WANTING TO BE LOVED.
LOVE IS TOUCH. TOUCH IS LOVE.
LOVE IS REACHING, REACHING LOVE.
LOVE IS ASKING TO BE LOVED.
LOVE IS YOU
YOU AND ME
LOVE IS KNOWING WE CAN BE.
LOVE IS FREE. FREE IS LOVE (ALMOST).
LOVE IS LIVING. LIVING LOVE.
LOVE IS NEEDING TO BE LOVED.
The name LOVE came to me one day as a cleverly apt acronym (Los angeles Organic Vegetable Express), as I was riding in a car, here in Los Angeles — a place that could use all the LOVE it can get. I’ll spare you my line-by-line analysis. Suffice it to say that I hold the words and the sensibility of this song dear, and cherish the idea that on any level you care to look at it, I feel like I am spreading more LOVE in this world (at least in L.A.). Besides I LOVE to evoke John Lennon any time I can.
