The Nature of Love 

Are you in love? Have you ever been in love or think you're in love? What does love really mean? Is it the deep burning desire that shakes you awake in the middle of the night or makes your heart flip flop at the sight of your intense interest? I have known, and still know, great love. It is the tiger that protects your heart and lets you know that you are safe. That no matter what you do, you will still be loved and cared for. To know great love, you have to give great love! You have to burn with the protective glare that no one can look into. A light so bright it keeps all darkness at bay. No lie can live there.  That's not to say that you never have grievance with your beloved. Sometimes the heat from the disagreement seems like it will turn you to ash but it's that exact fire that saves you and creates the Phoenix. It is inevitable.... and that's what makes a good song. The conflict of love, of pride, of independence and self respect. Love isn't easy ..... but it is everything. Just ask Melissa Carper, Michael J. Roth, Rachel Grubb, The Resonant Rogues, Paul Kamm & Eleanore MacDonald, Ruth Wyand, Lucky Mud and Frank Graham .... (especially Lucky Mud) about love! They have a lot to say and sing about and I hope you listen and let them know you love what they do.

Big Love, Maggie & Mike.     Lucky Mud
