All the Meanings of Love by Melody Pearson

Editors Note: With this month’s theme being “Love,” member April Galloway, aka: Melody Pearson, has penned this post to help get you started in this second month of our year long photo challenge!

HappyCoupleLove is a very flexible word. It can be a noun or a verb, as casual as “I love milk with my cherry pie,” and as serious as “I will love you forever.” Love can be as innocent as a baby’s joyful smile or as passionate as a honeymoon weekend. It can grow stronger with care or die of neglect. Love can be joyful or sad, it can be passionate or tough. We can demonstrate it with a touch, the tone of our voice, a smile or a tear. Love can be shown with words or with acts.older-couple-holding-hands


The kinds of love are just as varied:

  • love of God
  • Love for our children
  • love of our parents
  • love for pets
  • love for friends
  • romantic love
  • love for a sport or just a certain team within the sport.
  • sexual desire
  • love of a career
  • love for a hobby
  • love of country
  • brotherly love
  • love of certain foods or drinks
  • love of music
  • love of art
  • love of nature
  • love of reading
  • love of learning or teachingLexie-13

Tomorrow is the first of February, the month of love, and the West Kentucky Photography Club will be searching for love all month long. That’s their challenge for this month. Take pictures of love. Sometimes showing their own love for someone or something. At other times, showing the love of others for them or for each other. Have a happy Valentine’s Day all month long.file4841279803449
