Romance is defined as a quality of feeling, of mystery, excitement and remoteness from everyday life.
At this time of Valentine's Day we naturally ponder the idea of romantic love and often we think of it as the love between two people. Could it be that romance is really feeling a heightened sense of joy in your life and loving your life. Love and romance, in my opinion, extends into so many relationships. It can be the love we have for ourselves, enough to take ourselves on an artist date. It can be the love and excitement we feel with our special loved one. I've experienced romance through all the coming togethers I capture; friends celebrating with each other; people with their pets; people enjoying their family in the beauty and wonder of nature and individuals who feel a special joy about something they've accomplished which brings them joy, and yes, couples on their wedding day with friends and family; and proposals which are so joyful. I've come to understand that we can feel romance with all our Earth's family, and in doing whatever brings us joy -- how wonderful is this?
