Pondering LOVE: Thank you, Leo Buscaglia

I've been pondering LOVE more intensely lately for a variety of reasons (as some of my friends and family who've been in touch with me outside of cyberspace can attest to.)

I aim to post more about it a bit here.

In the meantime, who else remembers Leo Buscaglia? Loved him and still do.

Here's some of what he had to say about LOVE:

Leo Buscaglia -‬ ‪Speaking of Love pt ‬1‪ of 6‬
From a talk he did in Sacramento, I believe in the 1980, but it is timeless.

‪Leo Buscaglia -‬ ‪Speaking of Love pt ‬2‪ of 6‬
I especially appreciate what he has to say about fat thighs.

Yeah, plums...and fat thighs!
O'Hare gets a shout out too.

Love the Joel's Day story he starts here.
I believe that one person's need is another person's surplus...and this story hits on that.

Tyranny of word! (Which LB talks about here before "racial profile" was a common term.)

I aim to be a better lover and look forward to hearing from anyone else who wants to discuss that with me. (Yes, chuckle it up, smut brains. If I knew how to say that better, I would. That's okay, have a giggle on me.)

Moving back to Evanston is one of the best things I've ever done for myself.
