JD Salinger wrote, “There are still a few men who love desperately.”…of which I am one.  I am not interested in the common, the shallow, the ordinary, nor the superficial.  I crave the kind of love that is rare, exceptional, and perseveres against all odds.   The kind of love that heals a scarred heart…and completes a searching soul with its mate.  This is what you give me... So true...
