I got an email recently from my friend Dana that said, “Please come back.”  So here I am…back…writing words. I’ve actually written several things…one post half-finished called Love Exists, one about that online dating website I joined and then un-joined, another about soul mates, another called What is Love and let’s just wrap them all [&hellip
