Iā€™m having a love affair. šŸ˜

 
It’s probably not what you’re thinking...
 
Before I tell you about my love affair, let me share with you what I read this morning in Elizabeth Gilbert’s book, “Big Magic”…
 
“Why do people persist in creating, even when it’s difficult and inconvenient and often financially unrewarding?
 
"They persist because they are in love.
