All you mere mortals will just have to come to Montreal in September to meet us and find out for yourselves.

But, but - my boyfriend will already have left to go home by then...

Oh, dear - tway needs to stop working now and go home.

That's okay Tway! We'll make sure you go home with some photos. He won't be left out of the loop.

Do you think True Love exists, and if yes, how do we know True Love?
Or is True Love an invention of the poets and incurable romantics?

It is truly impossible to give definitive answers to these questions. Love would appear to be more of what any one person chooses to believe it is, and purely subjective in nature. We just happen to believe that "true love" exists, so for us - it does. And, for us, it is a very simple concept, but one difficult to adequately explain to others. There was no cupid's arrow or lightning strike, no waking up one morning madly in love, no poet or incurable romantic delivery love to our door. It has been a gradual, almost in perceptible, process brought about by mutual respect, kindness, openness and a willingness to accept each other without boundaries. There are few rules and those apply to our behavior toward each other - not to the physical world we live in. Toilet seats and dishes and who cleaned up and who didn't don't really mean a damn. They are only tasks. We have chosen to expend our energies on what is important - being the best people we can - towards others, and more importantly, toward each other. In all honesty, we have probably worked very hard in creating the love we share... But, even when looking back over the years, it has been an exceptionally obvious and simple road we have chosen to follow. Because of this, we can enjoy each other's company 24 hours a day. We were two complete people entering the relationship, but we are now greater than the sum of both parts. We can't imagine life without one another and dread the day when that may become a reality. We experience great joy in sharing with and doing for one another. We have, in essence, created our own "true love" - which work very well for us.

True love comes in many forms. Some may never find it, others may never want it and others still will let it go to elevate their own personal enlightenment. It is what you choose it to be. Now I'm off to "wax poetic" somewhere else. ;)

Mr. I here....
DAMN, so that's what happened.......And here all along, I thought it was a spell or something.

I couldn't have said it all better myself. Although, honestly, I don't remember having to actually DO any work to achieve this state of harmony (unless you count mixing drinks...)

Girls, I agree......ISA, ISA, ISA!!!!!!!
