How Do You Know You Are Really in Love?

Young people ask me a lot of questions.  This one comes up often:
"How do you know you are really in love?"

The bad news is love is a vast territory.
The good news is there is a map.
Unfortunately, as you get older, your eyesight gets worse and you have more and more trouble seeing the map.
It doesn't matter, though, because the map is in another language and – like driving in Europe - the map has no relation to the territory.
Luckily, from time to time, there is a rest stop with a REALLY BIG MAP.
Look on the map. If it says, "You are here" then you are probably in love.

  1. Love is a snowmobile racing across the tundra and then suddenly it flips over, pinning you underneath. At night, the ice weasels come.
