Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.

When we exhibit love (which is a verb), we exhibit empathy. Empathy is the mirror of how we relate to others. If we are high on the altruistic scale then different parts of the brain are activated when we interrelate to others. When we see the eyes of someone who loves us, we see, more depth, more compassion, more understanding. And on the physical level their eyes will dilate a little, their eye brows might raise up a little, they speak to us in a different way.
When we are empathetic then we can read fear or pain in another person (somatosensory cortex). We will reach out to interact if we see someone in distress (same cortex). We are able to mirror the actions and emotions of others (inferior parietal lobe). We can also imagine the thoughts of others (tempoparietal junction).
So much of what happens in the literary world revolves around finding out how to recognize and measure the wrong way that traits or habits are expressed. Today is a special day to celebrate a very special emotion called love. Love in it's true sense is beyond emotion and those feel good endorphins. If we learn to enjoy each interaction as a child, then we learn the freshness and true joy of love.
"Love keeps the cold out better than a cloak."
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
