I Know What Love Is...
‘I love you, darling.’ ‘I love you, too.’ I love Pixel the cat. I love radiant sunsets, trees, grass, turtles, the way the ocean splashes against the shore. I love baseball, beer, good movies and trashy novels. Yes! I know what love is.
In ancient Greece Helen of Troy symbolized the prized possession of love that brough disaster to those who tried to keep her. A stolen bride is given in marriage to a wealthy Spartan king who wins her in a contest. Later she is carried off by Paris, the Trojan prince, an act that launched a thousand ships and a ten year war complete with a wooden horse filled with hidden soldiers.
