Most people think of romantic love between two human beings first when the subject of romance comes up in a conversation.

The following questions I ask of myself first, play along as we ponder romance together.

Is it possible to be romantically involved with interests such as fencing, hiking, playing chess, collecting baseball cards, fishing, etc.? The answer will be different for everyone.

Is it possible to be romantically involved with our other passions, and then honestly look another person in their eyes and tell them they are the love of our lives? The center of our universe? The only thing we live for? They fill our waking thoughts? Only you know.

Romance, true, or not true? Is it just a great story we have been telling ourselves?

As we walk along this lonely road together, the answers will be different for everyone.

Each person's path is defined by their own personal life experiences, we are all the center of our own attention.

We are the primary character within our own virtual reality, and every other person is assigned as a secondary character. We see the world through our own eye's.

Our eyes become our filters, if we see with sad eyes, we will see the world as sad, if we see with angry eyes, we will see the world as angry.

Our goal should be to see with loving eyes so our world will be loving, we should strive to see with truthful eyes so our world will be truthful.

Stop and listen to the wind blow, but learn to see your world with romantic eyes.

Delve into the mysteries of the heart together with me in search of romance, and that feeling of excitement and mystery so often associated with love.
