How do you define love? It is a very complex emotion with many shades that reflect many levels of feelings. Caring for your partner, kindness, respecting your partner and giving her/him the freedom to choose, accepting her/him the way s/he is - these are all acts of love, I believe. This is what one might expect in an ideal situation, but then not every relationship is ideal. Love is a relationship of give and take. As the pendulum swings from one side to the other, so do emotions. This painting shows a full spectrum of various emotions - passion (red), joy (yellow), working together to create a beautiful future (green), dominance (crimson), sorrow (blue), feeling of inferiority (black). It invites the viewer to reflect deeply about the definition of love.
"I have learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." _ Maya Angelou
How do you define truelove? Do you love the other person for who s/he is or do you constantly try to change her/him according to how you think or behave? Love is a very complex network of emotions. It is a relationship which involves give and take, mutual respect,understanding and trust. It can begin with those parameters but sometimes it turns into a power struggle. When does the boundary shift from mutual respect,understanding, support and acceptance to a feeling of superiority or dominance?

Knowing where one wants to go, setting the goal and focusing on it are important in order to succeed. If one can eliminate distractions and stay focused on a single goal, success is not hard to attain. Sometimes it takes a young six-year old to remind us of this. It is based on a true story.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
